It seems like only yesterday that Isaac Chung was writing for City Weekly about his experience bringing a short film to Slamdance. Now he's the guy that local film students are looking to as a success story.
Chung will be featured next week as the first Distinguished Young Alumni Lecturer for the University of Utah Film Studies program. On Tuesday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Fort Douglas Post Theatre, he'll speak in conjunction with a screening of his 2007 documentary Munyurangabo -- about an orphan of the Rwandan genocide -- which played at the Cannes and Toronto film festivals. Other free screenings of Chung's films include his first documentary feature Six Days (about the underground evangelical Christian movement in China) on Sunday, March 8 at 7 p.m. in Orson Spencer Hall's Reed Auditorium; and the work-in-progress Lucky Life on Wednesday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Post Theatre.
*Sigh* They grow up so fast.
