This documentary was created by students as the product of their research conducted in an independent study directed by Rachel Willis at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The video was created by Christian Khang, with media assistance by Dylan Hubbard, and with the assistance of Cherish Khang, Nou Lo, Mai Vang, Pang Yang, and Steve Yang in research, scripting, and narration. Together these students narrate the persecution that the Hmong people have endured since the beginnings of their people in southern China. The students detail the mistreatment of the Hmong throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, from their 1810 expulsion from China into Laos, and through occupations by the French and the Japanese, to their oppression during and after the Vietnam War. The story concludes with the immigration of several remaining Hmong clans to the United States beginning in 1975, where many Hmong families are now seeing their children graduate from universities and begin fulfilling careers.
