Sleepwalker

A Film by Andrea Yu-Chieh Chung

Synopsis

What does it take to stay awake when the reality is tough and home is far away? Using archival footage of the Sunflower Movement that took place in Taipei, Taiwan in 2014 as a starting point, the filmmaker reflects on her ideas of home, politics, and the importance of being present.

    Andrea Yu-Chieh Chung

    Long before discovering her passion in docu-mentary filmmaking, Andrea Yu-Chieh Chung was born in Taipei, Taiwan, to a family full of wanderers. Her mother is a flight attendant, while her father's family belongs to a subgroup of Han Chinese called Hakka, who got their name, literally translates as "guest people," because of their large diaspora population. Influenced by her family, Andrea is curious about the world and passionate about telling stories of people who are in between places and those who strive to understand and overcome differences. Andrea’s documentary and multimedia work have allowed her to continue exploring the globe: She has worked on projects and screened her films in the UAE, the US, Cuba, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden, India, Sri Lanka, and beyond.
