Who won the war is a short documentary weaving interview, archive and animation to tell the remarkable story of a Hiroshima survivor.

In 1956, orphaned and partially blind, Takashi was invited by the American Government to the United States to “regain his health”. A second grader when the atomic bomb dropped, with six members of his family dead of radiation poisoning, Takashi embarked for the U.S. at 18.

As soon as he landed in California, Takashi realized that he had been identified as an eligible subject for experimentation undertaken by the ABCC (Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission) to understand the effects of intense radioactive energy on the human body.

Takashi's story is different from many other Hiroshima survivors. It is the journey of an angry young man whose misfortunes begin right after the Hiroshima bombing. It's a story of revenge, and acceptance of the past.

'Who Won The War' is playing in YKIFF's International Shorts Program.
