The Making Of / Behind the scenes

   Running for Grace was filmed on the Big Island of Kona, Hawai'i. Half was filmed in the Kailua-Kona area, and the other half on Hilo side. Many of the sets were located at real sites which existed in the 1920's such as Shinobu's shack, the bridge, and the coffee bean factory. The Ford Special Edition Model T was made in 1926 and was used by the fire marshall. Many of the background actors were actual descendants of the coffee plantation workers which they played. Jon Sakata, who plays 'Taki' the wagon driver, remembers visits with his great grandma who was blind and yet still picked coffee in the fields.
