JIEJIE, Mandarin for sister, is directed by Asian-American writer and director Feng-I Fiona Roan. Her film won the prestigious HBO Asian Pacific American Visionary Award in 2018. At its heart, JIEJIE is an Asian American story of first-generation immigration experience from the view of a child. We caught up with Fiona to discuss what it was like growing up Asian-American in both Asia and the US, and her next big project – AMERICAN GIRL.
Every year since 2010, Global Tiger Day is celebrated on July 29th to raise awareness and support for tiger conservation. And I’m part of The Doubling Wild Tigers – Tx2 initiative. Our goal is to double wild tiger numbers by year 2022 across 12 tiger range countries in Asia and Russia.
