Mini-documentary: The Durian Man

My first mini-documentary “The Durian Man” co-produced with Chinese journalist John Zongmin Chow was aired on The United Nation’s official YouTube channel.

This story of a unique durian retailer in New York City is part of UNTV’s news magazine program “21st Century”, hosted by former BBC World News anchor Daljit Dhaliwal.

We spent about 3 weeks in Fall 2013 for filming, but and the production and process of finding a suitable publisher took almost forever until we met with UNTV producers.

It was my first attempt to tell story through video, and it was a fruitful journey. Now I’m contemplating on my second mini-documentary.
