Leatrice ching

Leatrice Ching is an award-winning director hailing from San Gabriel Valley who hopes to offer and develop her own distinct take on cinema. After developing her foundation for filmmaking at Pasadena City College, she transferred to the University of California, Irvine with a full scholarship into their Film and Media Studies Program. There, she gained the theoretical insight into the study of cinema which she implemented in her award-winning films, I SEE RED and CYCLES. Both projects were funded by the FMS Undergraduate Production, Research, & Travel Grant. Coming from a mix of Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese roots, her films set out present stories and characters that audiences from many backgrounds can empathize with.
