Help Documentary FINDING KUKAN Complete Act One – Robin Lung

Can the discovery of a long lost 1941 Oscar-winning film bring redemption to the unheralded Chinese American woman and the forgotten photojournalist behind the making of the movie?

My documentary FINDING KUKAN is headed into post-production thanks to the generous support of many donors. I have donated my time to the project for the past 3 years and have assembled an amazingly talented post-production team. We have a great chance of being awarded finishing fund grants and have partnered with PBS Hawaii to apply for one of the big ones. Now we just need to get a strong first act edited to submit for the grants. Please check out our Registry to see how you can help.

Note, if you don't want to use your credit card, or if you would like your donation to be tax deductible, please write a check payable to CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT DOCUMENTARY with FINDING KUKAN in the memo line and send it to:

One Hour of Editing -- Shirley Thompson is an editor with a heart of gold and worth her weight in gold. We need to fund 3 weeks of her editorial time to cut a strong first act of the film that we can use to raise finishing funds with.

The spirit of Li Ling-Ai -- We need $3,000 to license an invaluable 1993 interview with KUKAN co-producer and pioneering Chinese American media maker Li Ling-Ai. That's about $100 for every ten seconds in the film. And she packs a lot into ten seconds!

15 seconds of archival footage screeners. Yes, we must pay to even look at some of the rare newsreel footage we discovered. But images of KUKAN's producers Rey Scott and Li Ling-Ai are priceless!
