“Hafu” Film Screening and Panel Discussion.

START: Oct 17, 2015 END: Oct 17, 2015

One in forty-nine children in Japan was born from parents with different nationalities. Some are recognizable and others are not. “Hafu” is a documentary film which follows the lives of five young “hafu” living in Japan; delve into their experiences, and gain a new perspective on nationality. In a country where only 2% of the population are foreign, yet mixed marriages are on the rise, what does it mean to be “hafu”?
