Hapa-ness: A Canadian Experience

Hapa-ness: A Canadian Experience (2010)

40 minute documentary

Being Half-Japanese has always been more of a novelty than an identity. I’m Half-Japanese, Half-German, but ALL Canadian. Toronto is the most Multicultural city in the world, but where’s “Japan-Town”? Why have Japanese Canadians assimilated so effectively and how will the mostly “HAPA” next generation represent the community? This documentary explores identity and multiculturalism from the Hapa point of view.
