Here are a few suggestions:

Marlon Riggs  “Black Is. . . Black Ain't

The films of Alan Berliner draw upon autobiography about his Jewish 
background.  His “Nobody’s Business” is about his father.  The website has 
clips from his films: http://www.alanberliner.com/abt/index.html

Trinh T. Minh-ha  “Surname Viet Given Name Nam” on Vietnamese female identity 
in the US and Vietnam

Jonas Mekas has shot autobiographical films as a Lithuanian expatriate

Hope this helps,

Robert Goff
