Why not consider the attractive relationship between culture and art?
A talk series will begin this autumn at the Immigration Museum Tokyo (IMM), whose core focus has been the creation of works of art. For the second arts session, there will be a screening of the documentary film “HAFU(half)”, which features narration by the half-Japanese protagonists themselves and candid interviews, plus a talk by cast members.

About the film “HAFU”
Directed and shot by Megumi Nishikura & Lara Perez Takagi / 2013 / Japan / 87 minutes
The story of half-Japanese people in a multicultural society.
We are in an era in which people are frequently on the move throughout the world, and in Japan too there are increasing movements of people. In such a climate there are now many people in Japan with one foreign parent. Among them are people who stand out by appearance, and others who are completely inconspicuous. The documentary work “HAFU” takes the viewer on a journey of discovery through these mixed-race people’s mixed emotions and multicultural experiences in modern Japan.
