Continuing coverage of Diasporic films screening at this year’s Seattle International Film Festival, which begins on the 19th of this month…

The documentary is titled A Lot Like You, and its short story goes… Eliaichi Kimaro (also the film’s director) is a mixed-race, first-generation American filmmaker, with a Korean mother and a Tanzanian father, in search of her roots, tracing her father’s footsteps back to Mt. Kilimanjaro, where she discovers the beauty and brutality of the life he left behind, and translates that into her own personal legacy.

The 80-minute film screened as a work-in-progress at the San Diego Black Film Festival earlier this year. Its Seattle date will be its official world premiere!
