As an immigrant filmmaker who grew up in the American South, Jing Niu (MFA|EDA '14) shot her first film on 16mm with a Bolex camera, which went on to screen at experimental film festivals across the world. Her autobiographic film DEPARTING toured prestigious art museums in the South, in an exhibit with the likes of Andy Warhol and Carrie Mae Weems. Currently based in Los Angeles, Jing spends her time creating films that dismantle the model-minority myth by featuring independent female Asian protagonists.
