Shepherd's Pie and Sushi

Shepherd's Pie and Sushi

Also available

This documentary presents Mieko Ouchi, half Celtic, half Japanese... and all Canadian. In 1993, Mieko, an actor, began researching a documentary about her grandfather, Edward Ouchi, a Japanese immigrant to Canada. Then she was cast to star in The War Between Us, a film on the WWII internment of 22,000 Japanese Canadians--re-enacting a key episode in her own community's past. Part Canadian history, part autobiography and family chronicle, Shepherd's Pie and Sushi looks at complex questions of personal and cultural identity with a light touch.

    This was a wonderful look into the life of Canadians, different generations that were tied together by the historys and experiences of each one. A beautiful narration and portrayal by Mieko Ouchi . Sorry it too so long to for me to see this little treasure of yours but I promise to look for more .... ok. Much success and thanks to the NFB for having this. Regards, Gregory Davey
