Shadow weavers  erica nguyen

Erica Nguyen is a first generation Vietnamese-American filmmaker and traveler. Her interdisciplinary studies at UC Berkeley revolved around Anthropology, Ethnographic Film, Sociolinguistics and Spanish; ultimately framing her filmmaking process as an extension of an ongoing query into the nature of how estrangement from our origins manifests in our bodies. Increasingly familiar with her outsider status both at home and abroad, her personal experience of loss around cultural identity motivates a desire to encounter urgent stories and collaborate through mutual self study. She embraces reciprocal methodologies by approaching storytelling with reflexivity and subject participation in mind. As a Director, Erica’s vision is to celebrate the intersections that leave us spanning worlds and making meaning in between.
