EnMaze Pictures and USC Annenberg Film Marketing Association will present a screening of short films made by US-educated Chinese directors today at USC.
North American Chinese directors are pioneering filmmakers. They grew up in China, and were educated and developed their careers in the west. The mix between east and western culture has been influencing them, and makes their movies unique
Following a path similar to directors Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club; Soul of the Banquet) and Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Brokeback Mountain; Life of Pi), a generation of filmmakers who grew up in China are being educated and developing their craft in the West.
