Now based in New York, Nanfu Wang is an activist and documentary filmmaker from the People’s Republic of China. Her work has been critical of her homeland’s policies and has made her a controversial figure. Her breakthrough film was Hooligan Sparrow, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and was shortlisted for the Academy Award® for Best Documentary Feature as well as winning the Film Independent Spirit Award, the International Documentary Association Award, a Peabody Award, the Cinema Eye Honors Award and the George Polk Award. Her second feature, I Am Another You (2017), also won multiple special jury awards at international film festivals. When she gave birth to her first child, Nanfu Wang was inspired to investigate the one child policy of her homeland, which premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and for which she received her first APSA nomination.
