We continue our series East Meets West, which celebrates the contribution of the Asian community in Edmonton.
Today we meet the Edmonton filmmaker, playwright and actress Mieko Ouchi.
She's been busy working on various projects ever since her career kicked off with the documentary Shepherd's Pie and Sushi, about her mixed family roots. And her latest acting role is in The Guard, a Canadian series that runs on Global TV.
CBC Radio's Dalia Thamin spoke with Mieko.
