Seeking Asian Female, Snap Special – Heart’s Desire
What if an older white male started chasing young Asian females? Is that right? Is that racist?
Debbie Lum sets out to make a documentary exposing the loathsome “Yellow Fever” phenomenon. She began filming Steven, a 60-year old white man, and Sandy, a 30-year old woman from China. But when Steven and Sandy need a translator, Debbie uncomfortably finds herself on the other side of the camera.
She also has a fantastic web project discussing sex and race at Theyreallsobeautiful.com. Check it out.
