Japan Trip 2015
In September 2015, I was honored to attend the International Youth Summit for Nuclear Abolition held in Hiroshima – and afterwards, to do further filming in Tokyo.

Austrian Television Documentary
In autumn 2015, I initiated and produced a German-language documentary for the major Austrian broadcaster ORF: ‘Setsuko Thurlow – Ihr Kampf gegen Atomwaffen’ (‘Setsuko Thurlow- Her Fight against Nuclear Weapons’). Sabrina Peer directed the documentary; independent filmmakers Philip Aschauer and Michael Geyer did the shooting and cutting.
