Tiffany Hsiung’s Critically Acclaimed Documentary SING ME A LULLABY, Now Streaming on POV.ORG

Award-winning PBS documentary series POV Shorts has acquired the broadcast and streaming rights for Sing Me a Lullaby, directed by Tiffany Hsiung.

Sing Me a Lullaby, now streaming on POV.org and the PBS app, is an intimate story about Hsiung’s fourteen-year journey to connect with her mother’s birth family. In 1965, Tiffany’s mother was separated from her parents; she never saw them again. 40 years later, Tiffany flies to Taiwan to try & find her grandparents–armed only with two names scribbled on a napkin. Told through the intertwined journeys of daughters and their mothers, this is a story about recovering familial history, healing inherited pain, and understanding that love comes in many forms. Sing Me a Lullaby is a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation production in association with American Documentary | POV. The film won the Shorts Grand Jury Prize at DOC NYC and is also available streaming on The New Yorker.
