Mulberry Child on PBS Nationwide in May

I happened to find myself in Chicago over the last week as part of the wedding of one of my oldest and best friends (shout out, Holly), and serendipitously it was the opening weekend of Mulberry Child on PBS across the country (U.S). It is Asian Heritage Month after all, and well, we’re Asian.

And as chubby as I might look in the film (one of my friends unceremoniously asked me after the screening it if I had lost 30 pounds since production), I’m so grateful that PBS took a leap of faith to support our story and believed in its universality. The trailer is available here.

For the month of May, you can watch the movie on your local PBS or World TV provider or stream the 55-minute TV version online at http://video.pbs.org/program/mulberry-child/.

I thank you all for your kind words and support, and am always be happy to answer any questions or hear your feedback. Your willingness to share our story and our trailer would be very much appreciated as well.

For those who know me: I believe three very simple things;

1) Change is good

2) Nothing is that scary

3) There are good people everywhere

I look forward to knowing more good people out there.

Check out “Mulberry Stories: Conversations Between an American Daughter and Her Mother”

This month, my Mom and I were asked to write an ongoing series for Asian Fortune, one of the leading publications for Asian American news. We aptly called it “Mulberry Stories: Conversations Between an American Daughter and Her Mother,” and it will feature our ongoing conversations about cross-cultural and cross-generational conflicts.

We’re thrilled that  a week after the series launched, our story is currently featured on the digital edition’s front page.

These themes, of course, are those addressed in Mulberry Child movie, and will play central to our second book [a work in progress]. If you haven’t already, you can check out the trailer to the film below:
