Description

Born with It (2014) and NHK Series: Mixed Roots, Episode 1 (2016)

The NBCUniversal Short Film Festival’s Best Film Award winner, Born with It tells the story of the first day at school for a 9-year-old Japanese-Ghanian boy, Keisuke. At a new school in rural Japan, Keisuke contends with discovering his own identity as well as earning the acceptance of his classmates. This short film is followed by the U.S. premiere of Japan’s NHK public television series Mixed Roots. The television series follows the lives of three Japanese-Ghanian brothers (the Yano Brothers) and how they negotiate their identities between Japan and Africa. Stick around after the films for a conversation with Born with It actor Dadie Takasugi and Film Director Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour as well as a discussion with Mixed Roots film subjects—the Yano Brothers (Michael, David, and Sanshiro).
