Tigertail, Yang emphasized, is highly fictionalized—but aspects of its emotional core mirror real questions about the cost of achieving the American dream. While working on another project in Shanghai, he called up his dad; they met in Taiwan, where Yang hadn’t been since he was seven. “The talent has always been there, they’ve just not had the opportunity to show the world how wonderful they are.”, Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahr, 24/7 coverage of breaking news and live events.

Yang makes his feature directorial debut with "Tigertail," on Netflix Friday, which is loosely based on his father's immigration story. And his son is now talking to Vanity Fair about a movie he directed. Thanks to “Master of None,” Yang had a pre-existing relationship with Ted Sarandos, the streaming giant’s chief content officer. “Fingers crossed that they don’t all hate me.”. When the show premiered in 2015, this episode—titled “Parents”—was hailed as a quietly groundbreaking exploration of a specific, yet startlingly familiar dynamic between immigrants and their children. “It was not a sort of cash-in on the Asian trade,” the filmmaker said, laughing ruefully. “My dad grew up impoverished and was living in one room in the rice fields, and had a single mom who had three boys and worked in a sugar factory. He’s had prostate cancer, and that’s fortunately a slow-moving cancer—but we know that we have a finite time here,” Yang said. The movie was a go.

A shrugging small-time actor, Dev can be petulant with his mother and father, amiable Indian-Americans who immigrated in the ’80s. His brother was an architect in Hong Kong before their family immigrated to the United States, where his degree wasn’t recognized. “It’s an art house-inflected movie that’s almost entirely in Mandarin and Taiwanese and it features no Marvel stars,” Yang said with a laugh about its marketability.
