"When we released energy from the atom everything changed except our way of thinking. Because of that we drift towards unparalleled disaster." - Albert Einstein. 1 No More Hibakusha (Main Feature) Director: Martin Duckworth. They come forth to testify to their suffering and to warn humanity. They are the survivors of Hiroshima. They are willing to recall their most painful memories and describe the torment they endure, because they have heard some people say a limited nuclear war would be "acceptable." They know better. 2 If You Love This Planet (Oscar Winning Documentary) Director: Terre Nash. Fact from the film: the strategic arsenal of the U.S. contains enough weapons to "overkill" each Russian 40 times; Russia's strategic arsenal is capable of "overkilling" each American 20 times. 3 Minoru: Memory of Exile (Bonus Feature) Director: Michael Fukushima. It's the story of the Fukushima family from 1941 to 1953, years that saw Japanese Canadians become victims of a racist policy.
