The Grace Lee Project

The Grace Lee Project

With wit and charm, The Grace Lee Project puts a hilarious spin on the eternal question, "What's in a name?" When Korean American filmmaker Grace Lee was growing up in Missouri, she was the only Grace Lee she knew. Once she left the Midwest however, everyone she met seemed to know "another Grace Lee." But why did they assume that all Grace Lees were reserved, dutiful, piano-playing overachievers? The filmmaker plunges into a funny, highly unscientific investigation into all those Grace Lees who break the mold -- from a fiery social activist to a rebel who tried to burn down her high school. The Grace Lee Project airs Friday, May 2, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. on WXXI World.
