Kuan CAO was a researcher focusing on neuroscience and cardiovascular disease from China.
Between healing people’s physical bodies and influencing people’s mental parts, Kuan decided to pursue the latter for the rest of his life. He went to Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles in 2018 for an MFA degree in Film and Television Production and has been awarded the degree in 2021.
Now, he is diving into the ocean of directing and writing. His works pay more attention to social justice, moral choices, and things happening in people’s daily lives. There is no genre limit for him.
- Year Film Title Description
- November 24, 2021 1992 History deserves to be told and presented. We need to reexamine what happened in the past to prevent repeating all the mistakes we made before. There aren’t many films covering the LA riots in 1992 and even fewer films that tell stories during that time from the Korean people’s perspective. As a critical community that passively got involved in this event, Korean’s perspective can offer the audience a different angle to perceive what happened in the past and reflect the country’s social and political realities. In the meantime, the whole film is a reminder to those who don't know about the 1992 LA riots and a comment on George Floyd event that happened in 2020. It's been almost 30 years since what happened in 1992. Are we making any difference? When will the division end?
