Jenni Trang Le graduated with a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from UCLA. She began crafting stories in performing arts and cultural debauchery with Club O’ Noodles, a Vietnamese American theatre troupe, in 1999 that led to her involvement with the VAALA and the Vietnamese International Film Festival (ViFF) in 2003 to present day.
In 2003 Le worked on Ham Tran’s “Journey from the Fall” as the office coordinator. After that, she has been involved in numerous film productions such as talent liaison and associate producer of “Holly” (2003, directed by Guy Moshe), a film about child prostitution in the gritty reality of Cambodia. She has also held the role as first assistant director of “Finding Madison” (2005, directed by Tuan Tran), “Owl and the Sparrow” (2006, directed by Stephane Gauger) and, most recently, the action romance period film “The Rebel” (2006, directed by Charlie Nguyen). In January 2007, Le received the Armed with a Camera Fellowship through Visual Communications where she wrote, directed and animated a 5-minute claymation entitled, “Oh Mommy!” (Mẹ Ơi!). “Oh Mommy!” was her directorial debut and she is proud to flow within the creative waters of the new Viet Film Wave, weaving stories and interlacing visuals that touch the soul.
