Back in the late 1990s, Emmy award-wining filmmaker Spencer Nakasako made a video diary called “Kelly Loves Tony” (posted above), based on a Southeast Asian teen couple living in Oakland, Calif. Part of what’s known as the “1.5 generation” of the Vietnam War, Nakasako follows 17-year-old Kelly and her boyfriend Tony as they juggle parenting and school.
