About

 

Joey Chu is an award-winning Filmmaker, Photographer & Graphic Designer from Hong Kong. The inevitable debates between cultures in her upbringing sparked her interest in international affairs and non-fiction storytelling. Her pursuit in documentary filmmaking launched her opportunities to travel to all seven continents, and to cover human experiences in places such as Cambodia, Nepal, Myanmar, Argentina, Brazil, Kenya and South Africa. 

Currently based in San Francisco and Los Angeles, Joey continues to refine her artistry of merging quality visual design and authentic stories around the world.
