Director's Statement


As Michael Adachi lay bedridden in Hospice care from a 30 year-old fight with Cancer, he never once strayed from his goal of presenting a small BUT important part of his family history.

Boodie and Bambi: A Nisei Story reveals the challenges and successes of a Japanese-American family as told through the lens of an African-American filmmaker.

Two different generations;
Two different ethnicities;
One goal of presenting, not only the “Dream” of America, but one unique “Reality”. As Michael placed one version of his family story in my care, I proceed knowing that we will persevere, as will the story.
