Brooklyn, NY, USA
Waley Wang is a Chinese-American filmmaker based in Brooklyn, NY. His directing focuses on stylized, poppy aesthetics with a heart, as well as a fascination with dark drama, absurd comedy, and the metaphysical. His collaborators have included South Korea-based artist The Black Skirts and Brooklyn-based artist Cool Company. Before directing, he worked as a corporate ghost writer, lit projects with subjects like Forrest Whittaker and Luis Guzman, and managed commercials for Chinese brands like Huawei and Bosideng. He enjoys searching for the ever-obscuring experiences and uncultivated identity of being Chinese American, as well as the uncaptured humanity of being a young millennial / old gen z-er. He is currently in development for two short films about Chinese immigrant parents and their first generation American children.
