Looking for nuclear protest play...

Help me find this anti-nuclear protest play I saw online at some point in the last two years.

At some point since the start of 2010 I found a film of an anti-nuclear/pro-disarmament protest play dating from the 1950s or 1960s. I would desperately like to find this video again. My memories of the piece are somewhat spotty. It might have been specifically geared towards protesting nuclear testing, and even more specifically might have been related to the "Golden Rule" protest action in the 1950s. Another part of me, though, believes it was partly produced by Japanese activists, and may have included hibakusha from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or survivors of the Lucky Dragon incident.

The piece itself was definitely a play originally that had then been filmed, not a proper movie in its own right - the sets were spare and the acting style was rather presentational. It may have had the word "Flower" in its title.

I have been doing a great deal of research on the United Nations lately, and I may have come across it that way. Of course, another part of me believes I was led to it by links here on metafilter. I believe the website that hosted it was a larger video archive, and I want to say that the color scheme of that website was orange or beige.

Any ideas?

Do you remember ANY element about the plot? Any of the characters?

As I recall it was more a series of vignettes than a fully plotted play. Part of the problem is that I did not watch the piece from beginning to end when I first found it - I just made a mental note that I would want to watch it at some point down the road. I finally have time to get back to it...

Never mind, I found it: Which Way the Wind.
