About the Speaker: Vivian Hua (華婷婷) is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer with semi-nomadic tendencies. As the executive director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, a co-founder of the civil rights film series, The Seventh Art Stand, and editor-in-chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of her work unifies her metaphysical interests with her belief that art can positively transform the self and society. In 2018, she released her narrative short film, Searching Skies–which touches on the controversial topic of Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States–and in 2020, she will begin production on a comedic Asian-American series entitled Reckless Spirits. She is passionate about researching efforts to preserve cultural space and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures.
