Lily Yeh is a global artist who is fueled by a belief that art is a human right, and that artists can create a foundation for profound social change. Slight of frame, but large in spirit and vision, the 70-year-old artist was born in China, lives in Philadelphia, and now, as constant traveler, the world is her canvas.

After seven years in the making, filming is now complete. We have raised significant funds from foundations including CHG Charitable Trust, The Philadelphia Foundation, New Path Foundation and Compton Foundation. These funds have allowed us to complete a rough edit. Now, we need a final push to support the final editing, original music, animation, color correct and sound mix – all the elements that will complete the film.

It has been an adventure and privilege working on this film. We are certain that it will be beautiful, inspiring and important. It is a story that needs to be shared with the world and we need your help to make it happen.
