The Ultimate Wish: Ending the Nuclear Age

Be inspired to prevent the end of the world with Lia Monti ’13:

Film Screening and discussion with Kathleen Sullivan, PhD, its producer.

Fukushima and Nagasaki: Our film ties them together, as their links have become dangerously clearer.

Sakue Shimohira was ten years old and hiding in a Nagasaki shelter when the nuclear bomb dropped on August 9, 1945. She survived and has dedicated her life to making sure that what happened to her will never happen to anyone again.

Today she continues to speak out and inspire people everywhere.

Sakue’s story of survival and its aftermath is the core of this powerfully moving documentary. We follow her, in the company of students Fumi and Haruka, as they talk to high school and college students in London, New York and Nagasaki, and we see Sakue in a gripping encounter with a Holocaust survivor.

Kathleen Sullivan PhD. is a disarmament educator and activist who has been engaged in the nuclear issue for over 20 years. Currently, she is the program director for Hibakusha Stories, an arts based initiative that brings atomic bomb survivors into New York City High Schools to share their testimonies. Dr. Sullivan has been education consultant to the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs in New York, and has produced two films about survivors from Nagasaki: “The Last Atomic Bomb” (2005) and “The Ultimate Wish” (2010). She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
