    The Hafu Project

    Inspiration for this film came from the Hafu Japanese Project, which includes literature about the mixed race experience in Japan. This 40-page English PDF is a full color A4 brochure - which gives you an insight into the lives of hafus. The booklet also has pictures and interviews of hafus, as well as facts and figures on Japan’s changing population and diversity. Along with the booklet, you will receive the postcard, shout out, and virtual hug!
