Chasing the Sun: Asia – Now Streaming on Journy!

Chasing the Sun follows adventure-seeker and filmmaker Stephen Friedman (host and creator of successful Fox Networks TV travel show The Blueprint) as he captures the story of the places he visits through the people of each destination. As the locals tell their story, Stephen uses each experience to rediscover why we are all born to explore.

In Season two, Stephen travels through Asia meeting artists, creators, musicians, chefs, and other creative people along the way. As he hears the stories of both natives and newcomers alike, he finds that the traditions and histories of these places are alive in the modern art and culture of its people.
