Christina Choe (Nancy) Talks with Andrew Ahn (This Close) for the Talkhouse Podcast

At the Kickstarter Lodge at Sundance, friends and fellow writer-directors Choe and Ahn have an unfiltered chat about film, family, festivals and more.

On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, we feature a conversation between friends, Kickstarter alums and fellow Korean-American writer-directors Andrew Ahn and Christina Choe, recorded at the Kickstarter Lodge during last month’s Sundance Film Festival. Choe was at Sundance with her debut feature Nancy (which won her the festival’s Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award) and Ahn with his Sundance Now TV show This Close, about two deaf best friends. Over the course of their wide-ranging and extremely unfiltered conversation, Ahn and Choe discuss not only their new projects but also telling stories of one’s own community, how Andrew came out to his parents through a short film, Christina’s club KGB (Koreans Gone Bad) – and a whole lot about Christina’s mom!
