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, 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 California for the first time, to a year into their precarious union. Global migration, Sino-American relations and the perennial battle of the sexes, weigh in on the fate of their marriage in this intimate and quirky personal documentary.

We went through a full range of emotions watching this. Cringing, horror, amazement, stunned, awkward, disbelief, laughter. It's not a deep documentary, and the bias that comes through from the film-maker is unexpected in a documentary, so please don't expect anything too serious. But this probably isn't what you expect anyway...
