Where are you from? (micro doc)
Writer, director, editor, researcher
"Where are you from?" was a question that emerged in a conversation with my father about his personal experience in the Canadian South Asian diaspora, a question that had frequently been posed by others as he was growing up, and eventually, by himself. I am learning the ways the hyphen fixed between Indian-Canadian not only represents a geographical linkage, but a constant self-reconciliation between Point A and Point B of a transnational identity. This is one (unfinished) piece of a personal attempt to answer the loaded question "where are you from?" from a second-generation perspective, beyond the context of borders alone.
