Coolest People to Know: Director Tadashi Nakamura

Dec 17, 2020
Tadashi Nakamura is a documentary director whose critically acclaimed films look back at the roots, key figures and forward momentum of the Asian American movement. And he does it in a way that makes this history accessible -- with style, panache and a little bit of hip hop flair. Perhaps it was Tad's destiny to go down this route. A fourth generation Japanese American, born and raised in Los Angeles, Tad is the son of filmmaking luminaries Karen Ishizuka and Bob Nakamura, who is sometimes referred to as "the Godfather of Asian American media."
