Seeking Asian Female: So Beautiful Panel
A highly intimate story about an unconventional relationship, the feature-length documentary, Seeking Asian Female, uses the unique romance at its center to address larger issues such as the immigrant experience, cultural conflict, and what it means to love. Director Debbie Lum initially conceptualized the film as an exposé about men with “yellow fever”, but comes away with a surprisingly humanist view of a polarizing topic in mainstream culture.
