Godzilla Turns 60

Hosted by

It’s been 60 years since Godzilla first trampled through Tokyo and into history as one of the world’s most enduring pop icons. A newly restored print of the 1954 original is playing around town this month, and another big-budget American Godzilla comes out May 16th. It will be the 28th Godzilla movie. We take a look at how the giant green lizard reflects ourselves and our world.
