About Nancy

Nancy is a provocative psychological thriller about love, intimacy, and trust – and what happens when lies become truth. Craving connection with others, Nancy creates elaborate identities and hoaxes under pseudonyms on the internet. When she meets a couple whose daughter went missing thirty years ago, fact and fiction begin to blur in Nancy’s mind, and she becomes increasingly convinced these strangers are her real parents. As their bond deepens, reasonable doubts give way to willful belief – and the power of emotion threatens to overcome all rationality.

About the Guest

CHRISTINA CHOE (Writer, Director)

Choe's feature debut Nancy premiered at Sundance in the 2018 U.S. Dramatic Competition, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award. Her docu-series Welcome to the DPRK, filmed in secret over three trips to North Korea, was recently acquired by First Look Media, producers of Oscar Best Picture winner Spotlight.

Choe’s previous work has screened at dozens of festivals, with her short film I Am John Wayne winning the Grand Jury Prize at Slamdance. Previous shorts The Queen and Flow screened at Telluride, SXSW, Aspen, among others, and earned her a nomination for the UK Film Council’s Iris Prize. Additional honors include an artist residency at The MacDowell Colony; a year-long HBO Directing Fellowship; a Sundance Institute Fellowship; and a Roger and Chaz Ebert Foundation Fellowship awarded at the Independent Spirit Awards.
