Keiko Bang, a Japanese-American who grew up in LA and Tokyo, wants to tell Asian stories. It isn’t always easy. ‘You can’t survive producing a doc just for the Asian market,’ Bang once commented. Her strategy has been to find stories that appeal to the international market. Bang says she has often felt caught between two worlds. When she produced a show for ‘Nova’ about WWII survivors of a Japanese kamikaze mission against an American ship, it was cathartic. ‘Every filmmaker has a program that embodies the fulfillment of a lifetime objective. For me, Sinking the Supership was that program.’
