Nanfu Wang Wins Big At SXSW for Her New Film: “I Am Another You”

Winning is her middle name. Nanfu Wang starts another round of film festival circuits at SXSW with her new documentary I AM ANOTHER YOU. This time, she walks away with two awards:The LUNA  Chicken & Egg Pictures Award for Best Feature directed by a woman and the Special Jury Award for Excellence in Storytelling!

“I AM ANOTHER YOU: When Chinese filmmaker Nanfu Wang first came to America, Florida seemed like an exotic frontier full of theme parks, prehistoric swamp creatures, and sunburned denizens. As she travels wide-eyed from one city to another, she encounters Dylan, a charismatic young drifter who left a comfortable home and loving family for a life of intentional homelessness. Fascinated by his choice and rejection of society’s rules, Nanfu follows Dylan with her camera on a journey that takes her across America and explores the meaning of freedom – and its limits.”

We wish Nanfu all the best on her new documentary and we look forward to seeing the many successful festivals that are in store!
