Storyline

When Kulap Vilaysack was 14, she took her father's side in an argument and her mother replied, 'Why are you defending him? He's not your real dad.' Twenty years later, she's finally ready to explore what that means. ORIGIN STORY is a feature-length, international quest - with stops in Los Angeles, Minnesota, and Laos - to meet the biological father she never knew. On the road, unforeseen revelations strike as hilarious or heartbreaking, rarely in between. ORIGIN STORY is a deeply personal but universally relevant tale of immigration, conflict, and personal responsibility.

Incredible documentary.
9 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

As a long time listener of Who Charted I could not wait for this film. It premiered at the Bentonville film festival and it blew me away. Both as a fan of Kulap Vilaysack and as a filmmaker. Incredible story. Incredible film.
