As a young filmmaker, Hyun Lee has already managed to create a bold and impressive body of work that’s distinctively her own. Her signature flair for stylistically vivid and complex compositions is exemplified in Lee’s slick, horror short film, Asian Girls. The short was selected to have its premiere at the internationally renowned SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas earlier this year.
It proceeded to have further screenings across the US and Europe, including major film festivals such as the Palm Springs Short Film Festival, London Short Film Festival and Encounters in Bristol, England. Lee’s unique horror was also well received in Australia, screening at the Melbourne and Sydney Film Festivals where she was a finalist in the Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films.
Following on from her success with Asian Girls, Lee has completed her second short, the beautifully poignant, broken-fairytale French Girls, and created another buzz-worthy music video for electro-pop musician Rainbow Chan. With her background in art and fashion photography, Lee’s enigmatic work has appeared in publications such as Ruins Magazine (London), the FdeC Reader (Tokyo) and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art’s 4A Papers (Sydney).
Lee rounds-off a busy 2018 with the announcement that Curious Film will now represent the evocative director. Kate Roydhouse, Executive Producer and Managing Director of Curious Film, says “Hyun is a truly talented and inventive filmmaker. I’ve been so struck by her intricately crafted, visually powerful scenes that really stay with you. We’re delighted to have Hyun as part of the team.”
“I’m so excited to have this opportunity with Curious and I feel privileged to be represented among some great filmmakers whose work I love.” adds Lee.
