The Harimaya Bridge came out the festival circuit with some positive buzz. More than that, a number of the movies' admirers have pointed out that some of Pearl Harbor evoking, less than charitable comments made in response to Japan's 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami have underscored the continued relevance of Harimaya Bridge's themes.
It's definitely a movie to keep an eye for when FUNimation releases the DVD/Blu-ray combo set on October 18, 2011. To mark the mid-month release, AICN has three art cards signed by director Aaron Woolfolk and the star Ben Guillory.

Driven by a desperate desire to hold on to what little remains of his son, Daniel travels into the heart of a culture he does not understand on a mission to collect a series of paintings left behind by Mickey. His journey – fueled by bitterness and regret – quickly uncovers shocking truths that bring an already-broken man to his knees. Will Daniel succumb to the hatred that has poisoned his heart, or will he embrace the spirit of Mickey’s existence and forgive the unforgivable?
