Jie Li & Ying Qian
Jie Li grew up in Shanghai and New York City, which grounded her interest in cross-cultural issues. While an undergraduate at Harvard, she began to work at the Long Bow Group as an intern and researcher for "Morning Sun," a film and website about the Cultural Revolution in China. Jie made her first documentary film "Safe" as a visual component of her senior thesis "Palimpsests of Private Life," on family history and homes in Shanghai, which received the distinction of summa cum laude and is currently taught in a Harvard Social Studies course. After graduation from college, she spent two years studying and traveling in England, Germany, and China, where she and Ying filmed "A Village Across the World."

Ying Qian grew up in Shanghai, China. She came to the U.S. at age eighteen on a scholarship to attend Harvard College. After graduation she spent a year studying in England and two years traveling and working as a journalist in Asia, where she started to make videos. Her earlier films include "Today the Wind Sails Here" (67 min, China, 2001), a feature story of friendship between three young people and an old man set in Shanghai, and "Once There was a Big Fish" (27 min, Czech Republic, 2001), an experimental film exploring allegories of the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi through a collage of dreams enacted by a group of Czech sinologists. She is now a PhD student at Harvard.
