Boston-area filmmaker and peace activist David Rothauser, whose documentary on Sacco and Vanzetti has been shown to activist groups in theatres and on PBS television, and who is a recipient of the Sacco and Vanzetti Memorial Award along with other notables such as Howard Zinn, is headed to Japan this summer to make a mixed documetary-drama about the "Hibakusha" or nuclear weapons victims. Filming will also take place in Hawaii and Korea, with victims of the Hiroshima-Nagasaki bombings taking part, and with the assistance of a wide range of Japanese who have flocked to the filmmaker's assistance after his plan was posted on several Japanese websites.

On May 26, 2005, he was in front of the White House sending warm greetings to the new Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas, who was meeting with President George W. Bush.
