Movie Info

Seeking Asian Female is an eccentric modern love story about Steven and Sandy - an aging white man with "yellow fever" who is obsessed with marrying any Asian woman, and the young Chinese bride he finds online. Debbie, a Chinese American filmmaker, documents and narrates with skepticism and humor, from the early stages of Steven's search, through the moment Sandy steps foot in California for the first time, to a year into their precarious union. Global migration, Sino-American relations and the perennial battle of the sexes, weigh in on the fate of their marriage in this intimate and quirky personal documentary.

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

What keeps this 54-minute film consistently engaging is Sandy herself, wary, pragmatic and... an absolute natural in front of the camera.

Top Critic

It's something of a roller coaster ride by film's end.

PopMatters

The tension between personal filmmaking and documentary filmmaking is what keeps Seeking Asian Female alive throughout; it's the best kind of documentary.

Combustible Celluloid

White guys with "yellow fever," looking for an Asian mate. Not as creepy as you might expect.
