Don’t miss our final Directors Close-Up evening at the Directors Guild of America… Lulu Wang and Expats: Storytelling on a Large Canvas

Expats is the first series from Spirit Award winner (and Project Involve Fellow) Lulu Wang. We’re thrilled to have Lulu back at the DCU to share her experiences bringing her latest project to life, alongside her long-time producing partner, Dani Melia, and production designer Yong Ok Lee, as they offer insight into the development process, working with a production team in Hong Kong, and building the world of Expats.

Lulu Wang (Writer/Director; Expats, The Farewell)
Dani Melia (Producer; Expats, The Farewell)
Yong Ok Lee (Production Designer; Expats, Minari)

A hosted reception will follow the filmmaker conversation.
