Director Biography – Yijun Pan, Anh Vo (RED THREAD)

I believe in the power of storytelling with a camera. Before I came to the United States, I was a full-time fashion photographer. Still, I want more, which makes me decide to pursue a new education at DePaul University with a cinematography concentration to prepare myself to understand and tell a better human story through visual storytelling.

Director Statement

The Red Thread of Fate (also referred to as the Red Thread of Marriage), is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the little finger of those that are destined to meet each other. The two people who connected by the red dread are destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This myth is similar to the western concept of a soul mate or a destined flame.

Through stages of the relationship, the concept we want to portray is in the modern world; people’s relationship is getting more and more complicated; our red thread sometime is not tied on only one person anymore. Sometimes people are getting suffer and torture in the relationship mentally and physically.
