Filmmaker Justin Chon was best known for his roles in the Nickelodeon show Just Jordan, and numerous films including 21 & Over, Seoul Searching and the Twilight saga, before he stepped behind the camera. Gook, his second feature as writer/director, won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2017 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and won Chon the Someone to Watch Award at the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

Chon’s third feature, Ms. Purple, premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and was sold to Oscilloscope Laboratories. The film won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2019 Dallas International Film Festival and Best Cinematography (Ante Cheng) at the 2019 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.

We’re pleased to welcome the team behind Ms. Purple – Justin Chon, producers Alex Chi and Alan Pao, and Director of Photography Ante Cheng (Project Involve, 2018) – to Film Independent to take us behind the scenes of the making of the film; from development and financing, through production and post, to its Sundance premiere and release.
