A LOT LIKE YOU
Eliaichi Kimaro (USA/Tanzania, 2011) 81 minutes. Swahili, Kichagga and English, with subtitles. Genre: documentary. Local filmmaker.
A lot like you raises questions about the cultures we choose to pass down and reveals how simply bearing witness to another's suffering can break silences that have lasted lifetimes. Seattle-based filmmaker Eliaichi Kimaro is a mixed-race, first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother. When Eli was older and in an interracial relationship of her own, she wanted to better understand this world her father had left behind when he was 18. When Dr. Kimaro retired and moved back to Tanzania for good, Eli followed him to make a film about this culture she would one day pass down to her own children.
