My Work


I'm a British Chinese documentary filmmaker and anthropologist based between Colombia and the UK. During film school (LFS) I directed several shorts in China including 'Pretty Girls' which premiered at the Women Make Waves festival and 'Lost in the Muqam' which aired on Al Jazeera. I moved to Beijing after graduating and worked with Chinese director Chen Shi Zheng on a multimedia project for Kronos Quartet, and with Teneighty Productions on various documentaries and commercials in China and around Asia including a 4D production for Wanda/Disney. I have continued to make short films in the UK and Latin America for companies including Actionaid, Siemens and Al Jazeera. In 2016 I set up Bardo Films with Andres Borda in Colombia. We recently completed our first feature documentary 'Sufi, Saint & Swinger', with Openvizor and have several projects in development.
