Tracing Her Tanzanian Roots in “A Lot Like You”
Director Eliaichi Kimaro is a first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother. When her dad retired and moved back to Tanzania, she followed him to do a film about his side of the family, one she didn’t know much about. Her work unveiled a shocking history she didn’t expect.
Kimaro talks with host Michel Martin about her documentary A Lot Like You, which won the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary at this year’s Asian American International Film Festival.
