Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA

Origin Story is a documentary by comedian and podcast host Kulap Vilaysack of Earwolf's "Who Charted?" It's an international road trip from Los Angeles to Minnesota to Laos, where Kulap's story began. It's a deeply personal but universal story about family secrets, alienation and personal responsibility.




Thank You

Origin Story

Last Friday -- an hour before the end of the campaign, surrounded by loved ones who also happen to be the Origin Story CA team and cousins from both my dad and birth father... I refreshed my browser to learn that WE HAD MADE OUR GOAL. It was uncomplicated and joyous, and all I could do was scream... then bear hug everybody one by one. Gobsmacked, I was at a loss for words. 

It's all because of you. 

Thank you from the bottom of my very being for contributing to this film. I was terrified to put myself in such a position of vulnerability, scared to ask and very worried about how this project would be received. I am floored by your support. What you have given me, beyond the funds to complete the documentary, is unquantifiable. You have changed my life. 

I am eager and excited for the work that lies ahead. I think I'll do you proud. I owe you that much. 

Love, Kulap
