Director Statement

It’s common for mixed-race children to feel like an impostor stuck between their cultures. They will often be told they’re not enough of one or the other. It’s this state of limbo that proves to be an obstacle in the journey towards self-discovery during such a vital time of development. As a mixed-race individual myself, it took me many years to come to terms with the fact that I don’t simply fit into one category. With this film, I aim to highlight the identity struggle most mixed raced kids experience and show that it’s okay to be who you are regardless of where your ancestors were born.
