Anime Clip: From Ants to Atrocity

Our Film Critic Derek Langston shared with us a jarring though realistic anime clip posted to Facebook two years ago, on the U.S. nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It opens with ants and then… progresses from there. The excerpt is not for the faint of heart, although we believe that it is critical for humans to forefront in their minds the true horror of war.

[CONTENT WARNING: Gruesome war imagery]

[UPDATE: Film Critic Langston says he believes the clip is from the 1983 film Barefoot Gen]
