Movie of the Week: The Fear is Good

The Fear is Good by Alice Yeung

“I always tell my daughter: Be stronger. Be bold. Be open.”

The Fear is Good by Alice Yeung (Mentor: Stephanie Jenkins) is a beautiful profile piece on a young immigrant mother and entrepreneur, and her struggle for independence from a challenging marriage.

“I made this film at first as a message of hope and inspiration to those in the same situation as my mother was, a single immigrant mother running a new business, and second as a plead for those in more advantaged situations to see the world from a different angleeven if only for 5 minutes and 45 seconds. Hope you enjoy!” said Alice from the 2016 Fall Documentary Lab.
