"Where Are You Really From?" is about the filmmaker's personal experience of receiving countless, repetitive, and racist comments living in America as an Asian American. It is the filmmaker's hope that people stop
the Asian hate, systemic racism, and stereotypes.
Disturbingly inspired by numerous recent incidents of Asians getting harassed and some of the major crimes targeted towards Asians including the Atlanta Spa Shooting Incident, the filmmaker hopes to criticize the materialization and objectifying of Asian women and unconscious, disrespectful, and derogatory terms used towards Asians and Asian Americans with vivid, uncomfortable, and abstract watercolor animation.
