Nakae Yuji's "Hotel Hibiscus" focuses on a family on Okinawa. The children in the family don't all have the same father (but they do have the same mother) -- one of them has an African-American father while another has a white American father. It's been a while since I've seen the film, but I don't think much is made of this except to note it in passing. Which could be noteworthy in itself.
