Christina Sun Kim, Editor

Moving across the world at a young age and never having a permanent home inspired her to want to connect people as a visual storyteller. While studying at University of Texas at Austin, Christina directed a short documentary, Dreams in All Sizes, which aired nationally on the Documentary Channel. She then solidified her passion as a storyteller while editing Tattooed Under Fire, a PBS documentary about Iraq veterans and their emotional scars. Christina is now based in Los Angeles and has earned her MFA in film production from the University of California, Los Angeles. In 2014, she was one of six fellows to direct a short with Film Independent's Project Involve.
