Project Description

A serial imposter, Nancy becomes increasingly convinced she was kidnapped as a child, and when she meets a couple whose daughter went missing thirty years ago, the power of emotion threatens to overcome all rationality.

Choe’s feature debut NANCY premiere at Sundance in the 2018 U.S. Dramatic Competition, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award. Her docuseries 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.
