Shiouwen Hong’s resourcefulness and adventurous spirit know no bounds. She’s a director, photographer and designer who has travelled solo to some of the most remote places in the world for her films. She immerses herself in the lives and minds of the people she documents, even sometimes despite speaking a completely different language. With a passion for community, nature, and the resilience of the human spirit, she always finds the emotional heartbeat and optimism behind a story. Her latest short film, NEHA, will be released soon.
