Based in San Francisco, Canyon Sam is an accomplished performance artist, published author and passionate activist. Canyon's book Sky Train: Tibetan Women on the Edge of History received PEN America Center's Open Book Award in 2010. Canyon Sam is also one of the first Asian American lesbian activists in the world.
As a filmmaker, I immediately found Canyon's life and works compelling because of her intersecting cultural, ethnic and sexual identities. Canyon has made significant contribution to both Asian American and LGBT culture and history but few people have heard of her. So I started making a documentary with Canyon.
"A Woman Named Canyon Sam" is finally due to world premiere at the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival in May. I am trying to raise $3,800 to cover post-production costs such as color correction, sound mix, music licensing, digital outputs and festival expenses.
Your contribution will keep the legacy of documenting ground-breaking Asian American and LGBT people alive.
Major donors ($500+) may request to preview the final cut of the documentary.
Please help me spread the word... and THANK YOU!
