Director's Statement

I wanted to make a film that gave nuanced portraits of young Asian-American women whose stories are seldom told in mainstream media. The dirty little secret is that Asian-American women have one of the highest rates of depression in the United States. While this film doesn't attempt to explain the reasons why, it does expose the isolating, alienating factors that make the young women feel the way they do -- the greatest among them the lack of acceptance and belonging. TIE A YELLOW RIBBON is ultimately about three young women's search for love and belonging.
