May 6, PBS Independent Lens has its premiere broadcast of
“Seeking Asian Female” , directed by my client Debbie Lum.
Debbie set out to make a documentary about the phenomenon of “Yellow Fever”, the condition of non-Asian heterosexual males who fantasize about Asian women. The film begins to explore one subject, Stephen, who almost miraculously convinces a Chinese woman to leave China and marry him.
Debbie as objective documentarian becomes a subject in the documentary herself, the triage translator and involuntary marriage counselor as we watch the train wreck of Stephen and Sandy approach.
Can this marriage be saved? Can Stephen recover from Yellow Fever? Can Sandy make a life for herself in Golden California?
Well worth watching.
