About the filmmaker:
Devin Fei-Fan Tau is a queer Taiwanese American filmmaker whose storytelling speaks out against the imposed silence he experienced from both his native and adopted cultures since immigrating to the United States as a child four decades ago. His first feature documentary Who’s On Top? (2020), narrated by George Takei, follows a diverse group of queer athletes making the arduous climb to the summit of Mount Hood. The thriller Half Sisters (2023) is his debut narrative feature.
Before making movies, he worked in the world of corporate finance and retail merchandising. He enrolled in film school at Portland Community College after discovering a love of storytelling while volunteering with Habitat For Humanity in Cambodia. He has directed 10 short films, including his award-winning 48 Hour Film Project submission Mensch (Human) (2017) and his 2018 Canada Shorts Film Festival finalist Malignant (2018). Through his film production company, No Sunrise Wasted, he and his team also direct and produce corporate and other branded content.See our upcoming films
