Healing through story
A personal welcome from Alton...
"Alton Takiyama-Chung's Okage Sama De's story on DVD is about what it is like to be sent to an internment camp during WWII and then volunteer to fight for your country. This is an extraordinary work. Alton Chung is a powerful artist." -Jay O'Callahan
Mix together the magic and superstitions of the Hawaiian Islands with the history of Japan and Korea and you get finely spun stories from a man rooted in a very unique culture and a one of a kind perspective.
All of this is combined and delivered with a deep sense of reverence and authenticity.
Not only does he breathe life into traditional Asian folktales with sensitivity and deep connection, but he can also touch into the fire of ancient Hawaiian legends and tell them with passion and respect.
