Day of the Western Sunrise is an animated documentary by DALIBORKAfilms in the Japanese storytelling method kamishibai, which uses hand drawn visuals and 3D stills with narration. The film follows the crew of the fishing vessel, Daigo Fukuryu Marū (Lucky Dragon No. 5) on their search for tuna. On March 1, 1954, the crew survived the Castle Bravo thermonucluer test in the Pacific Ocean by the United States, which was the largest explosion known. The events of the explosion as well as the lasting impact on the crew’s lives are retold through interviews of the surviving crew and narration.
