Meet John de Jong & his cultural identity crisis

Twitter interview with John de Jong

John de Jong (@johndejong) is a filmmaker and Vietnam War scholar. But what really intrigued me is a statement he once said “I struggled with my identity as Asian Australian.  Which is probably the main reason why I have approached John for an interview and it ended up being an impromptu twitter chat.

Seen his video yet? Watch it here 

There’s more to John that catches the eye. He is also interested in riding around Australia with his motorbike, but I think I leave that story for another time.

Till than, if you like to find more about him, have a chat to him on twitter or check out his website.
