Miramax Films Releases Limited Edition DVD of Kayo Hatta's

Miramax Films has issued a jam-packed, limited edition DVD of Kayo Hatta's
1995 debut feature PICTURE BRIDE. Set in the North Shore cane fields of 1900s
Oahu, this award-winning historical drama stars Youki Kudo, Akira Takayama,
Tamlyn Tomita, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, and the late Toshiro Mifune. The film,
written by Kayo and Mari Hatta and produced by Diane Mei Lin Mark and Lisa
Onodera, is one of the very few, if not the only, motion picture to tell the story of
Hawai'i's Japanese American community at the dawn of the 20th century, and
deserves a prominent space in anyone's DVD collection. PICTURE BRIDE is now
available at all retail outlets and on the web. Log on to
