Trivia

Danny Glover's birthday was the same night the concert scene was filmed. During the first take, when Woolfolk said "action", instead of playing the music for the scene, the orchestra played Happy Birthday, followed by a cake being brought onto the set. In his remarks to the cast and crew, Glover spoke of how he and Bennet Guillory had performed in the building thirty-five years earlier when it first opened as a community center and theater.

Warm, Engaging, Educational and just plain Fantastic!
25 June 2012 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Warm, Engaging, Educational and just plain Fantastic! I saw The Harimaya Bridge at the Sacramento Japanese Film Festival in 2011. All I can say is 'WOW'! I am an African-American male, veteran who now lives in Japan so this movie answered a lot of questions for me. It also helped prepare me for my new life in Japan.

I immediately started sharing it with every veteran I know, because of its rich content.

Director Aaron Woolfolk hit a home-run with The Harimaya Bridge.

I think the thing that sticks out about this film for me is Mr. Woolfolk's international spirit. The Harimaya Bridge was filmed in Japan and the United States. Mr. Woolfolk was able to build bridges between two countries, make a film that deals with very sensitive topics for both countries and do it all with grace.

Great job Mr. Woolfolk. I am looking forward to your future films!
