One Big Hapa Family 
Film summary: After a realization at a 
family reunion, 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  
feature live action and animated documentary explores  
why almost 100% of all Japanese-Canadians are  
marrying interracially, the highest out of any other ethnic  
group in Canada, and how their mixed children perceive their 
unique multiracial identities. One Big Hapa Family  
challenges our perceptions of purity and makes us  
question if mixing is the end of multiculturalism as we  know it.
