That’s My Boy
Won Jury’s Best Documentary Award at Bioscope Global Film Festival 2015.
Won Best Documentary at Sanford International Film Festival 2016.
Thats my boy, a documentary portrays the life of Sonu, who strongly disagrees to believe that his gender is the biological one. Sonu was born a girl but he always knew that his physical body and mental identity were at odds with each other. Amidst all adverse circumstances and a very poor social background Sonia flew towards her goal of defining a synergetic relationship between her body and mind, which finally made her a ‘him',Sonu.

Vic’s perfect life in America ends as her mother Lynn pays an abrupt visit from Taiwan. Her girlfriend Janet realizes that Vic has never come out as she promised. Devastated, Janet leaves their apartment with a suitcase. The next day, Lynn takes Vic to have lunch with her friends. Vic assumes that Lynn has set her up with a male suitor but little, does she know that her mother has a secret of her own
Life of Silence
Screened at Taiwan Golden Harvest Awards & Short Film Festival 2015, Tokyo International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival 2015 and Frederick Film Festival LGBTQ Night 2015, among others.
A fiction woven in the reality, three gay men tangled in two weddings. When there is contradiction between erotic life and parental expectation, one would have to make a difficult choice. In order to rethink marriage, Life of Silence, a sequel to Body at Large, looks at the oppressed sexual minorities. What is a Happy Family? Is there only a single way to make it? Or one should be able to embrace one’s sexuality freely?
