Since then, the film has been played around the world, including cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, and Marseille, among others.

Now, for the first time and thanks to Amazon Prime, director Jonathan Bellés brings to US his documentary The Dawn of Kaiju Eiga, a 51 minute film covering more than six decades in detailing how several generations of filmmakers have shown Godzilla in different ways. But all of them staying true to one golden rule: the relationship between Godzilla and the atomic bomb. Discover this story through interviews with more than twenty filmmakers, actors and film experts from around the world that have worked on the Godzilla movies from 1954 through to today.
