FILM SCREENING - "One Big Hapa Family" - September 10, 7 p.m., at the Carlson Theater at Bellevue College, 3000 Landerholm Circle SE, Bellevue WA 98007. Half Japanese-Canadian filmmaker, Jeff Chiba Stearns, embarks on a journey of self-discovery to find out why everyone in his Japanese-Canadian family married interracially after his grandparents’ generation. This live action/animated documentary explores why almost 100% of all Japanese-Canadians are marrying interracially, the highest out of any other ethnicity in Canada, and how their mixed children perceive their unique multiracial identities. There will be a Q&A with filmmaker Jeff Chiba Stearns following the screening. Appropriate for ages 12 years and older. This event is free, but reservations are strongly recommended. RSVP to Kevin Henry at email@example.com or 425-452-7886. For more information about the film, visit the film's web site.
