Bring your whole family out to see the feature length version (85 minutes) of One Big Hapa Family. Q&A will follow screening. Rated PG.

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 all Japanese-Canadians are marrying interracially, and how their mixed children perceive their unique multiracial identities.
