tags: nuclear weapons, Hiroshima, Video of the Week
This essay was inspired by a fascinating conversation on Quora. There are many contenders for the unluckiest person, but it also tells us something really important about what history chooses to remember. I am very proud of the opening scene of this essay; both narratively and visually it is one of the most sophisticated ideas I have tried. I wrote an article on Medium breaking down how I constructed it.
