映画『ハーフ』予告編 Hafu: the mixed-race experience in Japan [Official Trailer]
Has anyone seen this? I haven’t but i’d really like to. I really feel like people need to recognize the fact that Japan isn’t this exclusively closed off country, that conforms to the West’s delusional beliefs that we are “conservative”, “quiet”, and “meek”.
This high lights the lives of many different people: an Australian / Japanese, Venezuelan / Japanese, Korean / Japanese (important to me). Mexican / Japanese, and a Ghanian / Japanese person.
I really hope that this film was well made and has a good message. At any rate, it’s extremely important to convey to people - both our own people and to foreigners under terrible misconceptions - that Japan is an ever changing nation.
How often I hear “How are you Japanese and Korean? DON’T THEY HATE EACH OTHER?!?!?!!?!” really reminds me how incredibly uninformed others are about our country, our culture and our people.
Again, I haven’t watched this yet. But it looks good.
What do you guys think.
