Summary: Hiroshima and Nagasaki evoke powerful and sombre associations of holocaust and apocalypse, a vision that gives rise to Japanese hibakusha cinema, which attempts to come to terms with the bombings in a number of ways. Including contributions from such renowned theorists as Donald Richie and Susan Sontag, Hibakusha Cinema focuses critical attention upon this little-studied yet vitally important trend in Japanese film. Assembled chronologically, the anthology begins with rare, early commentary and closes with new criticism specially prepared for this volume. The essays explore the metatextuality of Hiroshima and Nagasaki via film and television renderings of hibakusha experiences as well as Japanese projections of future nuclear wars. Hibakusha Cinema assesses a broad range of Japanese film to locate this significant theme: the essays cover documentary and dramatic films made under strict, Occupation-era censorship; the historical docudramas of the 1950s and 1980s; the widespread though critically neglected nuclear monster subgenre; and apocalyptic manga films and videos.

Inhaltsangabe: Hiroshima and Nagasaki evoke powerful and sombre associations of holocaust and apocalypse, a vision that gave rise to the Japanese subgenre of cinema, "hibakusha", which dealt with the atom bombings. Fifty years later, have post-war generations come to terms with the bomb and what "Hiroshima means? "Hibakusha Cinema" focusses critical interest upon a rarely discussed yet vitally important feature of Japanese cinema. Assembled chronologically, the anthology provides an historical approach to the "hibakusha" genre within its social context. Rare and older commentary is combined with new writing specially commissioned for this work. The essays explore the "meta"textuality of Hiroshima and Nagasaki via film and television renderings of "hibakusha" experiences, as well as Japanese projections of future nuclear wars. Uniquely, the work assesses both documentary and drama films made under stringent Occupation censorship, the historical docudramas of the 1950s and 1980s, and the prolific, though critically neglected, nuclear monster subgenre and apocalyptic "manga" films and videos. The collection represents a potent mix of Japanese and Western (pan-Pacific) scholarship which harnesses multidisciplinary methodologies ranging from close textual analysis, archival and historical argument, anthropological assessment, literary and film comparative analyses through to psychological and ideological hermeneutics.
