Sinossi

On a regular Saturday morning in January 2018, as Hawaiian citizens went about their daily routines, the entire state population received an SMS from the Hawai’i Emergency Management Agency, which read: “Ballistic Missile Threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate Shelter. This is not a Drill”. As cellular communication networks collapsed and panic took hold of the population, 1.4m people (as well as their friends and relatives across the globe) came to understand the real, growing and urgent nature of today’s nuclear threat.

Directors’ Statement

The brief was to find a way of humanising this vast, existential issue of global nuclear security, whilst at the same time updating and making relevant to a contemporary audience a threat which for many people felt like a relic from the Cold War era. This story structure was inspired and underpinned by the extraordinary work of writer Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio, whose eponymous spoken word poem provides an indispensable lyrical framework for each chapter of the experience, as well as yielding its title. Jamaica’s words not only place the Hawaiian missile alert into a crucial historical, social, and cultural context. They also evolve in tone modulating and stimulating the user’s journey from disbelief and anger through to a sense of solidarity, and finally determined optimism for change.
