Ann Hu's's personal story would make for a great bio pic. Knowing no one, she was among the first students to come to the U.S. from mainland China after the Cultural Revolution to attend college. After graduating from NYU, she made her mark in the business world, but eventually wound up switching gears. In 1992, she took courses at NYU's Film School and in the years since has directed four features. Her latest, CONFETTI, offers a window into Asian/American immigrant life and is based on Ann's personal experiences. It is a powerful, passionate and timely story. And speaking of stories, Ann has many to share during our time together.
