Trương Minh Quý (1990) was born in Buôn Ma Thuột, a small city in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Quý lives and works here and there in the vibrancy of memories and present moments, his narratives and images, lying between documentary and fiction, personal and impersonal, draw on the landscape of his homeland, childhood memories, and the historical context of Vietnam. In his films, he has experimented with combining abstract concepts-images with realistic improvisations during shooting. His films have been selected for international film festivals and exhibitions such as Locarno, New York, Clermont-Ferrand, Oberhausen, Rotterdam, Busan, Les Rencontres Internationales Paris&Berlin. He is the alumnus of 2012 Asian Film Academy (Busan International Film Festival) and 2016 Berlinale Talents (Berlin International Film Festival). He won the main art prize at the 20th VideoBrasil, Sao Paulo in 2017. His second feature film, The Tree House (2019) premiered in 72nd Locarno Film Festival (Filmmaker of the Present Competition), where it was called as “Three of the festival's best premieres” by Mubi and “an ode to memory and filmmaking” by The Film Stage. The film continued to screen in 57th New York Film Festival (Projections), Viennale, Festival Des 3 Continents (Competition), Rotterdam International Film Festival (Bright Future Main Program), CPH:Dox (Artist & Auteur)… Currently he is taking research on new media at Le Fresnoy — National Studio of Contemporary Arts in France.
