Kulap Vilaysack is doing an Indiegogo campaign to finish post production on her documentary about her family and going to Laos to meet her father for the first time.
Also check out her episode of the Mental Illness Happy Hour podcast.
You guys, go support her!
The documentary really hit home for me. Just 2 years ago, I finally met my birth father in Vientiane, Laos too for the first time after realizing that the father-figure I grew up with was not my biological dad. The research process, the factor of being an immigrant and/or refugee, being separated from family members due to war, all plays a key role. There are other Lao young adults I know as well that have a very similar situation as this, as they too try to connect back to their homeland.
