Izzy Nguyen-Rael is a Mexican-Vietnamese filmmaker and graduate of The School of Cinematic Arts at The University of Southern California. Having grown up in a family of architects, she has always been captivated by how art has made her feel. Her teenage years were spent integrating graphic design, photography, and filmmaking together to express herself, and her experience as a first-generation young woman continues to resonate through the weaving of these mediums. Her films offer new insight into how we perceive life (and art). She finds the most joy in making films about how nothing can mean something – like how the architecture of Luis Barragán influenced her perception of social media.
