Gabrielle Nomura is trying to reach out to as many mixed-race Asian Americans, hapas, as possible for a film she’s making with the City of Bellevue. It is a localized (Greater Seattle and Eastside) version of the hapa project, which attempts to spread awareness of the multicultural experience.
They are filming March 22nd and 23rd, five people per day.
The project will be shot in 45 minute slots, 9:30 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 1:45 p.m. and so on so that they can finish by around 2:30 or 3 p.m. each day.
Please bring family photos, framed, if you have them, that help illustrate your multicultural story.
In order to participate: Please send her an email, firstname.lastname@example.org indicating what day and time slot you would be available. This will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
Gabrielle will be conducting interviews, Laura Adams Guy, who has done videography for PBS and the City of Bellevue will film and edit, Kevin Henry, Cultural Diversity Coordinator with the City of Bellevue, will help supervise.
Feel free to email with questions and concerns, and feel free to pass this invitation along to others. We hope you consider sharing your hapa story!
