Thursday, March 31: Audio Club - Mei Mei, A Daughter's Song
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – RadioWest continues its Audio Club with Dmae Roberts Peabody award-winning documentary "Mei Mei, A Daughter's Song." The 1990 piece has been called "a kind of aural poetry." It is the personal story of cross-cultural and cross-generational conflict as a mother and daughter travel to Taiwan together. Interviews, dramatizations, original music and sounds of Taiwan weave in and out to tell the story of Chu-Yin, who was sold to work as a bonded servant, suffered abuse, starvation and the horrors of World War Two.
