Director Biography - Peier Tracy Shen

Peier Tracy Shen is a Chinese writer-director currently based in Los Angeles. She has written, directed, and produced several shorts films and stage plays. Her films were selected to BAFTA Student Shortlist and several Oscar-qualifying festivals such as Cleveland International Film Festival, LA Shorts Fest, Nashville Film Festival and DC APA Film Festival (where she won Best Director). For three years, she served as a marketing representative for Universal Pictures and interned at FF2 Media as a critic. She graduated with honors from Columbia University, with a double major in English and Film & Media Studies, and recently obtained her MFA in Directing from the AFI Conservatory. She’s drawn to the incommunicable – the unexamined memories that shape a person, the nebulous connections between strangers, and the unconquerable distance between cultures and classes. Her characters, somehow always out of place, are set to embark on the challenging task of finding themselves in the world.
