Unity Film Series presents ‘Seeking Asian Female’ with filmmaker Debbie Lum
Please join us for a reception at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. The film will start at 6:30 p.m., followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Debbie Lum.
‘Seeking Asian Female‘ is an eccentric modern love story about Steven and Sandy — an aging white man with “yellow fever” who is obsessed with marrying any Asian woman, and the young Chinese bride he finds online. Debbie Lum, a Chinese American filmmaker, documents and narrates with skepticism and humor, from the early stages of Steven’s search, through the moment Sandy steps foot in America for the first time, to a year into their precarious union.
The Unity Film Series is hosted by UC Berkeley’s chapters of the National Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Hispanic Journalists and Asian American Journalists Association.
