Must See for all Americans..., 17 October 2002
Author: peterinvt from Brattleboro

I saw this film while living in the Marshall Islands, the same country as Bikini. The name Bikini is becoming lost in the world conscience and few of the younger people I've met know that it is an island or that atomic tests were performed there. It is deeply disturbing, but every high school or college student should see this film.

A sequel to this short film should be made on the long term impacts to the islanders and then re-released as documentary in two parts.
