Born in the Uyghur Autonomous Region of China on the Gobi Desert, Luo Jian {pronounced: LwOr-TSian} is a visual storyteller whose work is driven by a desire to explore versions of the world unseen. She graduated with an MFA degree in Film Directing from NYU, and holds her BAs in Sociology and Film Studies. Her magical surreal short film 'What Do You Know About the Water and the Moon’ premiered at the 2019 Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival, screened at dozens of top tier festivals and won several awards, before it launched the NOWNESS Asia platform in June 2020. Jian is the recipient of the Ang Lee grant, the Hollywood Foreign Press Award, and the "artist in residence" programme at Palm Springs International Film Festival.
