Description: “Hafu” is the unfolding journey of discovery into the intricacies of mixed-race Japanese and their multicultural experience in modern day Japan. The film follows the lives of five “hafus” as they explore what it means to be multiracial and multicultural in a nation that once proudly proclaimed itself as the mono-ethnic nation. The film is narrated by the hafus themselves and 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? 厚生労働省の統計では日本の新生児の49人に1人が、日本人と外国人の間に生まれています。この新マイノリティについては文献も十分ではなく、メディアでも深く取りあげられていません。ドキュメンタリー映画『ハーフ』は5人の「ハーフ」たちに焦点をあて、彼らの複雑な心境や多文化的な経験を通して、かつて単一民族と言われてきた国において、多文化・多人種であるとはどういうことなのかを探求する日々を追います。
