Boat People of Film and TV
Monday, April 6, 2015
With the new show Fresh Off the Boat making waves on TV, we thought we’d talk with our favorite Asian-American, Unity Online Radio host Evelyn Foreman, from The Call of Spirit, about her experiences. In addition to issues of immigration and multiculturalism, we’ll look at boat journeys in film like Life of Pi and Noah, and at the symbolic meanings of such journeys. Ever heard of the Mayflower? It's likely we're almost all descendants of adventurous, faith-filled boat people!
