Interview on NPR's Tell Me More

August 2, 2012

While on the east coast last week, I had the pleasure of popping in to NPR member station WBUR in Boston to talk with Michel Martin on her show Tell Me More about our film journey.

You can listen to our conversation here (10min 3sec): [audio https://www.box.com/shared/static/d8b0231438d3c7519917.mp3]

Tracing Her Tanzanian Roots in “A Lot Like You”
Director Eliaichi Kimaro is a first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother. When her dad retired and moved back to Tanzania, she followed him to do a film about his side of the family, one she didn’t know much about. Her work unveiled a shocking history she didn’t expect.

Kimaro talks with host Michel Martin about her documentary A Lot Like You, which won the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary at this year’s Asian American International Film Festival.
