In this educational short film made by the UN, Ms. Anju Niwata, a university student from Hiroshima, uses AI to colorize images of the city's atomic bomb survivors, capturing their resilience and hopes for a nuclear-free future. As she reinvigorates these haunting monochrome photos, they serve as a stark contrast to today's grim nuclear reality, highlighted by the UN Secretary-General's concern over a burgeoning arms race and the staggering 13,000 nuclear warheads globally. At a solemn Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park event, he urges introspection on the lessons drawn from the 1945 atomic catastrophe, emphasizing the pressing need for global disarmament and unity.
