Yumeng He is a director, editor, and ethnographer based in Los Angeles, California. Yumeng grew up in Beijing, China, studied Visual Anthropology at the University of Southern California. Her background as an anthropologist gives her a unique understanding of how one’s story and its cultural and social ambiance are closely intertwined. Her mission is to share deeply personal and resonating stories that recognize the uniqueness of our cultural experiences but also hope to bridge such differences. Currently working with the Oral History Project at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Yumeng intends to create a “cinema of affection” that does not exploit but to speak nearby, to embrace and to receive the film participants’ perspectives.
