The Greatest Adventure: The Story of Chris Jeon

I received an email from the director Ien Chi about a documentary he’s trying to raise money for. It sounds very intriguing.

I wanted to share this story I’ve had the luck of beginning to work on. I’m not sure if you read about Chris Jeon – who back in 2011 garnered some internet fame for going off to Libya and fighting with rebels against Gaddafi. We’re now launching a documentary project about Chris.

This is the link to our Kickstarter page with more:

It’s not only a fantastic story, but also one that deals much with breaking away from often repressive Asian-American growing-up environment, pressure to pursue high paying careers, and beyond.
