Akira’s Hip Hop Shop is a 2007 romantic comedy short film, written and directed by Joseph Doughrity. In the film, James Kyson Lee is Akira, a Japanese man with a passion for rap music, who falls in love with a beautiful Black girl, Daphne (Emayatzy E. Corinealdi), with a passion for all things culinary. His culture and hers are very different and their respective loved ones are shocked by the match. Will their differences, and the overwhelming prejudices of family, friends, and loved ones, keep them apart? Or will they manage to show that love is stronger than hate? Their fledgling romance will not be easy to sustain, with all of the obstacles in its way, but the two give it an honest try. Joseph Doughrity won the 2007 DGA Student Film Award for Best African American Student Filmmaker for Akira’s Hip Hop Shop, a beautifully-crafted look at multicultural romance.
