One Big Hapa Family

I just got to check out Canadian filmmaker/animator Jeff Chiba Stearn’s debut documentary, One Big Hapa Family, about intermarriage between Japanese-Canadians and white Canadians.

It’s a personal if cursory exploration of identity in an ever-shifting, globalized world that takes viewers from the internment of Japanese Canadians during WWII to the present-day mish-mash of multiculturalism. Stearns keeps it light and welcoming with loads of endearing animated sequences.
