“Hafu” – Japanese term for people who are half Japanese
“The ﬁlm explores race, diversity, multiculturalism, nationality, and identity within the mixed-race community of Japan. And through this exploration, it seeks to answer the following questions: What does it mean to be hafu?; What does it mean to be Japanese?; and ultimately, What does all of this mean for Japan?” (from the official website http://hafufilm.com/en/)
