At age 14, actor, writer and podcaster Vilaysack discovered that her Dad was not her “real father.” Origin Story is the record of Vilaysack’s international quest - from Los Angeles to Laos - to meet her biological father, leading to many unforeseen revelations along the way. Vilaysack will participate in a discussion following this screening, co-presented with the support of Asian American Studies in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
