Director Biography - Jaehee Cheong
Jaehee Cheong studied Film/Animation/Video at Rhode Island School of Design.
As a filmmaker who values silence, she believes sometimes silence can be louder than anything, speak more than anything, and show more than anything.
So she she carefully hears the silence coming from the innermost of her and writes them down, digesting.
Then, she speaks and shows her silence through her films.
