A portrait of Chikara Horiguchi, a tree doctor in Hiroshima who specializes in caring for hibaku trees, those that survived the atomic bombings. Horiguchi’s story is augmented by current footage of some of the iconic hibaku trees, including Camphor, Plantae, Ginkgo, and Camilia.

Articles:

"The jewel is Hiroshi Sunairi’s 2012 “Tree Project Film,” shot in Japan, about the so-called hibaku (“A-bombed”) trees that survived the destruction of Hiroshima, where the artist was born in 1972, and that are still tenderly cared for there. The film focuses on the daily rounds of a city tree doctor, although the artist’s project is of a larger scope. Over the last several years Mr. Sunairi has been planting seeds from the hibaku trees around the world, spreading their arboreal karma."

A New Year screening of "Making Mistakes" at the Village Zendo on Jan 25th 7pm


On Friday January 25th at 7:30pm The Village Zendo is proud to introduce filmmaker Hiroshi Sunairi and his 2011 documentary Making Mistakes (62 min.) The film is a soul-searching Buddhist tale of letting go and losing oneself among the spectacular landscapes of the “rooftop of the world.”
In the summer of 2010, artist and filmmaker Hiroshi Sunairi traveled to Xining, a city at the edge of the old Tibetan region in Amdo Province, China. He set out to create a documentary on the Yushu earthquake, which caused a massive disaster earlier that year in the town of Gyegu, but decided to travel elsewhere because of severe altitude sickness. The product of this decision is a beautifully filmed account of his attempt to make a documentary, as well as his unintended journey through the Tibetan Plateau.
