Director Eliaichi Kimaro stopped by KCTS 9 to discuss her film A LOT LIKE YOU.
A LOT LIKE YOU takes us on a personal journey into the most vulnerable corners of a family history spanning generations and continents. This layered documentary starts with a familiar exploration of mixed-race identity as the narrator searches for her roots, but brings the discussion to surprising levels of personal and political self-awareness. Fresh and inspired, tender and uncommonly smart, A LOT LIKE YOU triumphs as an exemplary work of first-person documentary for the 21st century.
Watch A LOT LIKE YOU on KCTS 9 Dec 31 at 3:30 p.m. Also streaming for a limited time.
