I'm a Los Angeles-based filmmaker of documentaries and fiction films. Most recently, I directed a movie called AMERICAN ZOMBIE, which has been playing in festivals (Slamdance, SXSW, SFIAAFF, VC Filmfest and others) and will have a theatrical release next year. I recently had a baby so I'm in a sort of zombie-like state and can't think of anything clever to write, so here's my 'official' bio. More to come on AMERICAN ZOMBIE. Thanks for tuning in.
Grace Lee produced, directed and wrote THE GRACE LEE PROJECT, a feature documentary that was hailed by Variety as "a funny, complex meditation on identity and cultural expectations," and "ridiculously entertaining" by New York Magazine. The film opened theatrically in New York Los Angeles, and Chicago, among other cities, after a successful festival run that included SXSW, Los Angeles, and the Pusan Film Festivals and was broadcast on Sundance Channel in 2007. Named one of Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film," Grace received her MFA in Film Directing from UCLA Film School. Her thesis film, BARRIER DEVICE, starring Sandra Oh and Suzy Nakamura, won a 2002 Student Academy Award, a Directors Guild of America Student Award, LA Asian/Pacific Film Festival's Golden Reel Award and Urbanworld's Grand Jury Prize, and was broadcast on the Sundance Channel. She also directed BEST OF THE WURST, a documentary essay about contemporary Berlin which has been showcased at festivals worldwide and was funded by the Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg.
