"Everybody has something that turns them on," she says. Lum's documentary tackles these tough questions in an unobtrusive way.
"What is wrong with that is when it crosses a line into expectations of behavior." That's the rub: "Yellow Fever" is about much more than sexual desire. Watch out for 'super mama.' In everyday language you do still hear these things." Aaaaaah. In an interview with Lum explains that passion drove her to start the project: "This is just so wrong and it shouldn't exist." But the videos have no voice-over narration telling us what to think and her voice lacks judgment, snark, or aggression as she questions interviewees.
They are super outgoing and independent and passionate.The salesgirl was kind of laughing at us and I was kind of thinking in my mind, does she hate us right now, but at the same time I was having so much fun I didn’t really care.

PHOEBE: You should already know how to figure this out, pretty much. It’s sad to say that it takes a couple practices to do it. How do you approach dating now to prevent being, getting involved with a guy who preys on Asian women?Then she gets a text from him saying that he hurt himself at the gym and had to go to the hospital but it’s not that bad, and she should just go to his apartment and wait for him. And at first I’m just telling myself you know, don’t freak out, he’s allowed to have female friends who are, who are attractive. Going through the album, I see photos of them kissing, and I’m just completely gobsmacked. She sees that right now, at this moment, he’s logged in somewhere else and he’s chatting up another girl, let’s call her Serena. CALLER: You are a super curious person, aren’t you? CALLER: Yeah, no the reason I ask is exactly like I stated, it’s just a sort of like a little bit of self-preservation and also a little bit of doing random good deeds. It sounds like online dating as an Asian woman is pretty hazardous. She said that if you’re an Asian woman, it’s your responsibility to already know that this is going to happen to you and just be educated about this stuff. It’s way too many of them to catch them, to the point where it’s like, well, you got to figure it out. PHOEBE: The first thing we asked the list of ex girlfriends, if last five all girlfriends are all Asian then we start asking more questions. STEPHANIE: Well, I don’t go on online dating sites. You can’t stop loving someone because of that one person who hurt you.Their distinctive sound also combines indo-dub basslines, searing sitar-inspired guitars and traditional sounds, shot through with fast-chat conscious lyrics."Their distinctive sound is a combination of hard ragga-jungle rhythms, indo-dub basslines, searing sitar-inspired guitars and 'traditional' sounds gleaned from their parents' record collections, shot through with fast-chat conscious lyrics".However, many will still have an attachment to the traditional values with which they have grown up., filmmaker Debbie Lum interviews dozens of people about "yellow fever"'— the specific obsession many Western men have with Asian culture.Tours to the United States, with the Beastie Boys, and Japan followed to wide acclaim.This week, producer Stephanie Foo tells a story about dating online that is unlike any we’ve ever heard before. But this guy she met, let’s call him John, right from the beginning, John was really warm. He offered her the keys to his apartment really early on in their relationship, which surprised her.Suzanne lets herself in and to kill time, she goes on his computer, starts working on a resume she’d been touching up and she sees this folder labeled Elizabeth hat’s just been updated. STEPHANIE: Suzanne is furious, but more than anything, she feels like she just needs to know more. It looks like they’ve never met, but he’s making plans with her to meet that week. STEPHANIE: What’s the self-preservation aspect of it? PHOEBE: Yellow fever, serial dater, cheaters, manipulators. STEPHANIE: I totally use the same method Phoebe does, because in my experience in confronting guys with yellow fever, I don’t want to date guys who’ve dated more than two Asian girls before me. And because of the way the world works now, I generally don’t go on dates. It just seems too dangerous, too full of skeezeballs, and it seems, it’s too easy for people who would use me to find me. I mean, it’s the same thing with any kind of heartbreak. STEPHANIE: It’s been a couple months since I deleted all my dating apps and the fear has subsided since then.And at first she feels bad, like, oh, I shouldn’t snoop on my amazing boyfriend, but her curiosity gets the best of her. And then: SUZANNE: Another box pops up with a girl named Tracey. And I’m wondering is this the same Elizabeth from the photos? CALLER: You know it’s better for me the less girls walking around the city spreading genital herpes, I’ve avoided it thus far so I’d like to continue that trend. What if he was making up a story so he could take advantage of my fears about yellow fever and try to be a hero so he could hit on me too? PJ: Okay so this is a little bit weird but so my girlfriend is Chinese. I haven’t been on a date since I deleted all my dating apps.
