The subtitles were very accurate and well-placed. The trailer video is only ten minutes, and the full-length is available for purchase. It would be ideal to have a follow-up video, say ten years later, to explore how their national and cultural identities have changed for them and the later generations (their young children).

Technical Remarks:

The video and links worked. The background and lettering made the reading easier. The video has English subtitles, but for the visually impaired, it would help to have a speech option.
