We recently reported that The Harimaya Bridge, written and directed by Aaron Woolfolk and co-starring Danny Glover, will be released on DVD/Blu-ray on October 18th.
This week Woolfolk announced that the film is now also available via video on demand (VOD) in over 100 million homes on Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cablevision, AT&T, Verizon,
Cogeco (Canada), MTS (Canada), and others.
A quick recap:
Executive produced by Danny Glover,
The Harimaya Bridge is a drama about an African-American man, Daniel (Ben Guillory) who travels to rural Japan to claim some important items belonging to his late son, from whom he was estranged. Daniel struggles to overcome his animosity toward the country, a result of his own father’s death in a Japanese POW camp during WWII, but things get complicated when he learns that his son has left behind some secrets.
By the way, Woolfolk is said to be the first African American to make a feature film in Japan.
