For those who missed my online presentation “Sakura & Pearls” for Pacific Historic Parks, here is the full talk followed by some excellent Q&A with the audience. It focuses on how I met an Atomic Bomb survivor at the Atomic Dome in Hiroshima who survived the bomb when he was only 4 years old. His name is Okihiro Terao-san and his house was less than 1/4 mile away from the epicenter of the bomb. Meeting Terao-san inspired my documentary “Sakura & Pearls: Healing from World War II” which is about Hiroshima Atomic Bomb survivors meeting American Pearl Harbor Attack survivors.

“Sakura & Pearls” Movie Talk at Pearl Harbor

George Kamana Hunter is the Director of the PBS Documentary Sakura & Pearls: Healing from World War II, which exclusively captures a special meeting between US Pearl Harbor Attack Survivors and Japanese Atomic Bomb Survivors at Pearl Harbor. He is the Author of Healing Our Bloodlines: The 8 Realizations of Generational Liberation, a guidebook on how to break free from the cycles of abuse. It was inspired by his 20 years of working with clients, including true stories from Jewish Holocaust Survivors, Native American Veterans, the homeless, immigrant families and Irish Americans who descended from the Potato Famine. It was written for people of all ethnic and religious backgrounds. When he's not making movies, writing books, or giving inspirational talks, he can be found surfing pristine waves in Hawaii and throughout the Americas. View all posts by G. K. Hunter
