Shepherd’s Pie and Sushi

Director: Craig Anderl, Mieko Ouchi Year: 1998 Run Time: 45min

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.
