Bao  Le

Bao Le



A self-trained cinephile born in the slums of Saigon, Le Bao made his first short film when he was 20 years old, borrowing an old camera from a friend. His shorts films include COAL, inspired by his relationship with his father, as well as SCENT, winner of the Golden Heart at the YXINEFF 2014, in competition at the 26th Singapore International Film Festival. His debut feature film project TASTE won the Most Promising Project at the Southeast Asian Film Lab 2016. The short film version - shot as a “proof of concept” exercise for the feature - competed at YXINEFF and the 27th Singapore International Film Festival, as well as other festivals on the Southeast Asian festival circuit.
