Anne Marie Nakagawa's documentary examines what it means to have a background of mixed ancestries that cannot be easily categorized. By focusing on 7 Canadians who have one parent from a European background and one of a visible minority, she attempts to get at the root of what it means to be multi-ethnic in a world that wants each person to fit into a single category.

Finding a satisfactory frame of reference in our 'multicultural utopia' turns out to be more complex than one might think. Between: Living in the Hyphen offers a provocative glimpse of what the future holds: a departure from hyphenated names towards a celebration of fluidity and being mixed.

    I wish the hurt feelings of half-breeds (which includes me) would be the only problem of humanity in the next century. You Canadians really don't have many problems do you?

    This documentary should be shown through-out our world. We are all mixed... think being one mixed civilization living together as humans.
