About the Director
Xue Yu (Alice), a journalist and first-time-documentary filmmaker based in New York, was born in Inner Mongolia and grew up in Beijing. She has always been drawn to be a storyteller, but found the visual method of transporting and translating reality for the audience to be most interesting. Her focus falls primarily on social issues and human interest topics especially those underreported. She received her B.A. in Mass Communication and B.S. in Psychology from Purdue University. And she will be getting her M.A. in Journalism (News and Documentary) from New York University May 2015. She has interned and worked with Phoenix TV, WLFI News Channel 18, Purdue Fast Track News and currently works for CNNMoney.
