HAFU: THE MIXED-RACE EXPERIENCE IN JAPAN (87mins)
Directors MEGUMI NISHIKURA and LARA PEREZ TAKAGI
Japan | 2012 | 87 mins | English, Japanese w/ES

With its plethora of cultural meanings, both positive and negative, Hafu is a term used to describe a Japanese of mixed heritage. Detailing the nuances of this hybridity, directors Megumi NISHIKURA and Lara Perez TAKAGI, both Hafu themselves, tell a compelling story of the voices and visibility of the Hafu identity with five stories of Hafu Japanese as they connect to their other roots in Australia, Korea, Venezuela, Mexico and Ghana to give us an absorbing look at ways of being Japanese.
