TwoOhSix Podcast - Interview with Alice Gu Director of The Donut King

Director Alice Gu talks about her new documentary The Donut King, an inspiring story of prosperity and ingenuity that also digs into the heart of immigration and racism in 1970's America, the perils of fleeing a country under siege, and the pitfalls of living the so called "American dream."

Alice Gu Director of The Donut King

I had an opportunity to speak with director Alice Gu for the TwoOhSix Podcast just before the end of the year. We talked about her experiences as a first time director, adapting to virtual film festivals, and how people like cinematographer Harris Savides and NBA star Kobe Bryant have influenced her life and career. She's definitely got that "Mamba Mentality" and I can see an All Star filmmaking career in her future. Oh, and of course we also talked about making the documentary, eating donuts on set, and learning life lessons while making movies. It was quite the conversation, I hope you enjoy listening to it.
