On January 13, 2018, an alert was issued to every citizen of Hawaii:
"BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."
Hawaiians were suddenly faced with a real and urgent nuclear threat - one that we all currently face, but rarely recognize. As Kauai resident Cynthia Lazaroff would later say, "The alert was false, but the nuclear threat is real... [this] is not a script, not a video game...we experienced it personally, we felt the terror." Although nothing happened that day, everything changed.
On the Morning You Wake (to the End of the World) is a virtual reality documentary that immerses the audience in the direct experience of Hawaii citizens to convey the fundamental injustice of a world where nuclear weapons exist.
