Wong, See-yuen Gina

Gina Wong studied monetary economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science and graduated in 1989. She worked as an investment banker and an entrepreneur before obtaining an M.A. in Literary and Cultural Studies at the University of Hong Kong’s Department of Comparative Literature in 2007. She currently works as a curator, artist, and filmmaker, dividing her time between Shanghai and Hong Kong. She is the co-founder and director of the independent art space Experimenta, having served before that as a board member of the Para/site Art Space. Wong made her feature film debut in 2011 with the documentary Orient Top Town (2011), a film about a real-estate development in Shanghai that failed as a residential project but that became transformed into a space for artists. The film won Wong Best First-Time Director at the 2011 Yosemite Film Festival. She also founded the Pineapple Underground Film Festival (PUFF) in 2011, which seeks to bring indie films to mainland China and whose offices are based in Hong Kong. Her most recent project from 2014/15 is The Occupiers Project, which is in post-production as of this writing.
