DESCRIPTION
Hafu: The Mixed Race Experience of Japan is the unfolding journey of discovery into the intricacies of mixed race Japanese and their multicultural experiences in modern day Japan. The film follows five hafus – the Japanese term for people who are half Japanese – who are compelled to explore what it means to be multiracial and multicultural in a nation that proclaims itself to be mono-ethnic.
