Biography

Lan Pham Ngoc is an emerging artist in Hanoi, Vietnam with a background in urban planning. Using film and photography as his two main tools of expression, his art attaches special importance to the direct, poetic and, especially, the whimsical aspects of human life. It is also associated with urban relationship issues, ranging from the minimal city landscapes to shifts in the citizens’ consciousness.
Lan’s first short film THE STORY OF ONES (2011) screened at numerous film festivals and art museums, including Visions du Réel (Switzerland), CPH-DOX (Denmark), New Cinema and Contemporary Art - Rencontres Internationales (France), and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography (Japan). One year later, he was invited to the Programme for Creators Residency in Hokkaido, Japan, where he organized his first exhibition.
In 2015, Lan’s first short fiction project ANOTHER CITY (2016) joined the Short Film Station in Berlinale Talents, and later, the completed film was selected for the Berlinale Shorts Competition at Berlin International Film Festival 2016. Besides working on further short films, he is currently developing his feature film debut, CU LI NEVER CRIES.
