Chingya Wang is a Taiwanese filmmaker based in Los Angeles & Taipei. As a storyteller, she uses camera to explore human condition in life, especially woman's psychological status in relationship. To tell stories in English but not her first language Mandarin allows her to explore the possibility of cinema language between eastern/western cultures.
Language barrier within cultural conflict is another theme of her films. The multicultural background of Los Angles nurses her to develop an unique aesthetic style. As Claudia Wells once said, ” Chingya made very well observed, at times funny, always evocative films about the collision of cultural assumptions. Incorporating old Chinese imagery, the film even became a kind of parable or fairy tale.”
Chingya holds MFA in Film Directing at California Institute of the Arts. Her thesis film Take Her Picture (2010) premiered at the Los Angeles International Women's Film Festival: Student Shorts Category. Her latest film Ayumi's Wedding Ring (2011) premiered at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, made by Visual Communications' ”Armed With a Camera” Fellowship.
