Dream Blossoms

Dream Blossoms:
60 Years of Zenichiro Uchida and the Refugee Immigrants

“Dream Blossoms: 60 Years of Zenichiro Uchida and the Refugee Immigrants” is a documentary about Zenichiro Uchida

After World War II, Zenichiro Uchida, a soldier in the Japanese Army, became disillusioned with war and strove to create “Peace Between Japan and the United States” and further his message” “Angels of Peace.”

 In the mid 1950’s, Zenichiro helped to immigrate 333 Japanese from Kagoshima, Japan to Salinas, which lead to the thriving Flower Growing business in the Salinas area. 

 Join us to celebrate the life of Zenichiro Uchida.  Film Producer and Zenichiro’s son Ted Uchida will give a talk about his father following the showing of the film.
