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.

For me, Sinking the Supership was that program.’
