Born in postwar Tokyo to a Japanese war bride and an African American soldier, Yayoi L Naito Winfrey has been creating media all her life. First, as an illustrator and graphic designer; then as a screenwriter, fiction writer and journalist; and, now, as a filmmaker. Growing up on three continents by the time she was five years-old gifted her with a strong appreciation for other people's languages and cultures. As a mixed-race person, she has an innate sense of what it's like being 'the other;' and, her long career in arts reflects that special position.
Storytelling through film engages so many senses. I feel so fortunate that I'm able to combine my love for both visual art and literature to make movies.
