Doll CHAO was born in Taipei and has been living in Brooklyn since 2012. Through her experimental diary film—a collage of montage using all kinds of materials including 35mm stills, 16mm, super 8, digital cameras, she and her own avatars self-analyse their lives as an Asian immigrant, stranger, a foreigner and an unfamiliar friend. With a stream of consciousness style of editing, her mind responds to family issues, dreams, emotions, and political and religious thoughts. Her works have been screened in festivals in Taiwan, UK, France, Belgium, Korea, China, Macau, Japan and USA, her Long Vacation in BK won the best experimental film in the 40th Golden Harvest FF. Her avatar, Space Meow Doll, is a musician from Brooklyn and has two EPs and one album.
