About the Project

MY GOAL: In early of 2014 I will travel to Vietnam to search for my biological father and create a cinematic documentary film of my passionate journey.

MY MISSION: HELP US GET THERE! Through my InvestYYC campaign I'm asking you to please help raise enough money to fly the film crew and I to Vietnam where we will be filming the month long search for my father.


HOW IT WILL WORK: If we raise $11,000 or more during the length of this campaign, we will receive your pledge and put it to work by flying us to Vietnam in early of 2014.

This requested amount is only 1/4 of the amount needed to film this documentary. I have put aside my own funds for post production of the film. I will be trying to obtain an additional $30,000 through grants and other fund raising methods. If I can exceed my InvestYYC amount of $11,000, it will put me that much closer to my overall goal.

Please donate what you can and share the InvestYYC link with friends and family.

ABOUT THE FILM: This film will be about my journey to a country where I was born but have never returned to—until now. My father's last known whereabouts over 25 years ago was in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), Vietnam's largest city of 7.8 million people. Vietnam is now a communist country and I know my search will be difficult so I have a few strategies to help me try and find him. But for now, all I have to go on is a photo of him and his name.

I don't have any memories of my biological father other than a photo of him and I from when I was about a year old. Coming to Canada, my mother told me the war split us apart. However, this story has never made sense to me as the war was over before I was even born. I don't have much of a relationship with my mother to this day, and I hope that this journey will not only locate my father, but also to uncover secrets of my family and help rebuild my relationship with my mother.
