Parallel Adele

Two half Vietnamese documentary filmmakers, both named Adele, weave a shared narrative of mixed Asian (hapa) experiences through interviews with 7 other mixed race subjects. History, memory, and anecdotes on multiracial ethnicity are represented through archival images, super 8 film, verité, and interview.

Reviews
"Recommended. What is it like to be a hapa? That is a person of mixed cultural descent with half being primarily Asian. What are the challenges, issues or advantages confronted by people of this background?...This short narrative documentary brings together verbal testimonies from those primarily of South East Asian origin, pointing out the daily difficulties of mixed ethnicity heritage…This is a program that will be most at home in public libraries, and would be helpful to academic libraries supporting multiculturalism. "
