    Colleen Kwok

    Born in Beijing, China and raised in Hong Kong, Colleen’s Chinese name is TungShuen,
    meaning the melody of childhood. She got her Bachelor of Fine Arts’ degree in film & video from University Wisconsin- Milwaukee, where she concentrated on experimental filmmaking and developed a particular vision that helps her later on in making narrative films. She later moved to New York and completed a Master of Fine Arts degree in directing/writing/cinematography from New York University - Tisch School of the Arts.
    She has made several short films: Rectangibles – a nostalgic tale of the loss of Kodachrome film, premiered in Edinburgh International Film Festival ’14 and The Stars The Sun The Moon - about her childhood time living in a basement with a schoolmate and a retired teacher that she often recalls, and That is Circling All Round the Sun which is her graduation thesis from NYU.
