We're so excited to premiere short film "100% Half": a film about the dichotomy of being mixed race, navigating your identity, and making it in Hollywood.
After a half Japanese high school student gets stuck on a college application essay, she reflects on a series of auditions to not only answer the question but also come to terms with her cultural identity.
For me, I have struggled with my bicultural identity. I’m either too Asian or not Asian enough. "100% Half" is inspired by true events and explores the complexities of identity from my own point of view.
