Radio Bikini is a 1987 indie documentary directed by Robert Stone about the happenings on Bikini Atoll in 1946. Stone uses graphic declassified footage to depict the state of mind of the US immediately after World War II. Islanders living on Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands of the south Pacific were removed from their homes in the interest of scientific research by the US. The island was then used to test atomic bombs under the watchful eye of numerous scientists from around the world that were invited to observe the events. Goats and sheep were sheared so these professionals could observe the effects of radiation on bare skin. Soldiers watched from shipboard not knowing they were being exposed to radiation poisoning. The islanders soon discovered that the island had been poisoned by the radiation, and they would never be able to return home. This film shows the ugly details, the government's mistakes and graphic footage of radiation and its effects on the plants, animals and people of the area as well as the soldiers performing the nuclear testing.moreless
