    Sung-A Yoon is a French cinematographer and artist born in South Korea and living in Brussels. She graduated from the National Superior School of Fine Arts of Paris- Cergy in 2005, and from the INSAS, a cinema school from Brussels, in 2008. Between 2001 and 2011, she directed ten short movies mostly showed in exhibitions (L’Atelier du Jeu de Paume, the Busan’s Biennale, l’Antenne du Plateau, the Bernard Anthonioz Art House, …). Switching to fiction, she finished in 2008 her short movie AND I'LL KEEP IN MY HEART that was selected for the Cannes Festival - cinéfondation, before travelling in a few international festivals. In 2012, she left to look for her dad, absent since her childhood, and ended up with her first documentary feature FULL OF MISSING LINKS (Courtisane-Gand Festival, London Korean Film Festival, …). OVERSEAS is her second documentary feature selected in the Concorso Cineasti del presente section at Locarno FF 2019.
