Biography

Angie Chen has been making films since 1979. She was born in Shanghai, brought up in Hong Kong and Taiwan, received her MFA from UCLA, and lived in America for over more than a decade. She now resides in Hong Kong, working in the industry as director/producer, and teaching part-time in the Film Academy’s MFA Program at Baptist University.

Hong Kong cinema’s New Wave saw many young moviemakers returning from overseas film schools, and Angie was among them. She received her master’s degree from the University of Southern California’s Film Department, and directed The Visit , a short that was awarded Best Documentary at the 1980 Toronto Film Festival.

She returned to Hong Kong in 1981 and worked as assistant director on Jackie Chan’s Dragon Lord and Leong Po-Chih’s He Lives By Night. She made her feature directorial debut, Maybe It’s Love starring Cherie Chung Cho-hung, for Shaw Brothers in 1984. This was followed by My Name Ain’t Suzie , which launched the movie career of Anthony Wong.

Her last feature was Chaos By Design, also starring Cherie Chung Cho-hung.

More recently, she has made commercials and has lectured at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts.

Recently she has made a comeback to feature filmmaking and directed two feature-length documentaries, This Darling Life (2008) nominated Best Documentary in the Taiwan Golden Horse Awards; and One Tree Three Lives (2012) world premiered in the 2012 Hong Kong International Film Festival, and Asia-premiere in the 2012 Taipei Film Festival.
