Hafu Screening

March 20, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $15

According to the Japanese government, one in forty-nine babies born in Japan today have one non-Japanese parent. This newly emerging minority in Japan is under-documented and under-explored in both literature and media.
The word hafu (ハーフ) is used in Japanese to refer to somebody who is biracial (ethnically half Japanese). This documentary film follows the lives of five “hafus” as they explore what it means to be multiracial and multicultural in a nation that once proudly proclaimed itself as a mono-ethnic nation.
For some Japan is the only home they know, for some living in Japan is an entirely new experience, and others are caught somewhere between two different worlds. This film touches on race, diversity, multiculturalism, nationality, and identity.
What does it mean to be hafu? What does it mean to be Japanese? And what does all of this mean for Japan?
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm      Screening (will start exactly at 7pm!)
8:30 pm – 9:00 pm      Q&A with Director Megumi Nishikura
