3/11/10 A Village Called Versailles and Burma Human Rights Day

Still from A Village Called Versailles


We speak with the Leo Chiang, director of the newly released documentary film, A Village Called Versailles. In the New Orleans neighborhood called Versailles, a tight-knit group of Vietnamese Americans overcame obstacles to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina, only to have their homes threatened by a new government-imposed toxic landfill. This film will be featured at the SFIAAFF.

Also, members from the Burmese American Democratic Alliance join us to talk about the 10th annual Burma Human Rights Day.

And Jennifer Kim talks about her self published book “Waiting for Appa,” which explores a Korean Woman’s immigration story as she deals with the death of her father.
