The trailer for the feature film “Go” is a dramatic reconstruction of the so-called atomic bomb go game which took place during the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan on 6th August, 1945.
It traces the events during the historical 3-day-long game between the master player Hashimoto Utaro and his challenger Iwamoto Kaoru, just 5km away from the explosion of ‘Little Boy’.
The deadly blast of the bomb disrupted the game, flinging players and observers to the side and causing serious damage to the building. Nonetheless, the game was played to a conclusion that evening.
The actors re-enact the exact moves of the game in a celebration of Japanese culture and history.
