Aileen Ye

Aileen Ye is an award-winning Irish-Chinese director and visual artist based between the Netherlands and UK. Exploring various mediums including 16mm, her work reveals the entangled narratives and marginal subcultures within Asian diasporas, memories and heritage.

Laced with themes of coexistence, exclusion and solidarity, she evokes forgiveness and beauty in our ever-growing multicultural lives through the use of experimental formats to highlight the ‘experimentality’ of life.

‘Beast’ was screened at BFI Future Film Festival 2023, marking her break-out trajectory supported by A24 and multiple prestigious institutions from Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Barbican.
