De Ideale Allochtoon (The Ideal Foreigner) is a 26-minute documentary film about the racism Asian females in the Netherlands face on a daily basis. Sparked by the ignorance of others, we witness how a community responds to xenophobia and hate through sensitive but ultimately positive discussions about the perception of Asian females in the Netherlands and the responsibility to view every individual as equal.

Prior to the release, I proudly announced the release of my new documentary De Ideale Allochtoon (The Ideal Foreigner), which premiered on April 9th at 19:00 (07:00 PM CET) on Facebook. It delves into the stories of three Dutch-Asian females who fight the racist encounters they face on a daily basis.

The filming of the documentary did, well, not go without any mistakes… ?
