Pasado Films
Creative Director
Brooklyn, NY
I'm a Korean-American filmmaker who is drawn to absurdist and surrealist premises to express human experiences. I've also found that while my films don't necessarily start out in the intention to express personal stories, I'll often find my experiences being expressed in the film throughout the creative process. My strong suits as a director are production design, working with actors, and honing in on the emotional core of the story. My weaker points are cinematography and pacing. I'd love to talk about my filmmaking journey in any of these aspects as well as how I interweave (or don't) my films with my identity as a female POC filmmaker and my desire to see greater representation in the industry.
