Hello! I'm not sure if you even check this tumblr anymore, but I thought it would be worth a try to contact you. My name is Vickie and I'm a senior at Wellesley College. I'm currently writing a Spanish thesis about Asian identity development in Latin America. My study involves an exploration of the Nikkei culture so naturally I came across your documentary. Would it be possible for me to ask you a few interview questions for my thesis? You can reply using my tumblr inbox. Thank you!!allnightavenue
