Motherland: Doris Yeung, Francoise Yip, Kenneth Tsang, And Byron Mann

Sunday, June 21, 2009

The new film by Doris Yeung starring Francoise Yip, Kenneth Tsang and Byron Mann will have its premiere at the LA Outfest on July 18 and July 19th (pick up tickets here).


After a long absence abroad, young Asian American woman Raffi Tang (Francoise Yip) is called home when her estranged mother is murdered. She becomes increasingly drawn into a web of deception and incompetence while at the same time dealing with her own grief. Equal parts noir thriller and dysfunctional family drama, Doris Yeung's bold debut feature is a sobering tale of the pursuit of the American Dream.
