I can already tell just by watching this trailer for a documentary of the lives of mixed-race people in Japan that this is going to be a really powerful film. I don’t discuss it very often with people that aren’t already embedded in the whole Japan circle, but I’ll admit that there have been times where I’ve felt identity crises of a sort because of my American heritage mixed with my Japanese fluency. I love what I do with my life, but sometimes I still find myself thinking about the big stuff like that. I can’t say those experiences line up completely with what mixed-race people have to go through in Japan, but certainly those experiences I’ve had have made me empathetic to the unique ups and downs that they experience in their lives. Sometimes I wonder if after I get back there and maybe I end up with kids of my own whether I’ll have to one day give them “the talk” about being mixed in such a densely “Japanese” society. Here’s hoping films like this and other things help Japan keep paving the way towards becoming a nation that really embraces its diversity widely one day.
