  • Xuedi Wang

    Born and raised in China, Xuedi Wang studied animation in college where she learned the art of storytelling through graphics, which eventually lead to an interest in film making. After moving to NYC, Xuedi had several interactions with Chinese immigrant families through her ties within the Chinese community and her thesis film is inspired by the conflicts between the first and second generations of these families. She plans to produce similar films based on immigration in the future using both motion picture and animation.
