Filmmaker Interviews

Spencer Nakasako (1998)

In Kelly Loves Tony, Emmy award-winning filmmaker Spencer Nakasako deftly guides this video diary of a young Southeast Asian couple wrestling with the demands of parenting, love, dreams and disillusionment in the nebulous cultural zone between first and second generation immigrant life in the 1990s. In this Behind the Lens interview, Nakasako talks about Kelly and Tony, and their status at the "1.5 generation" of the Vietnam War, being born in a foreign country, but growing up in America in a very "American" way.
