Ho Yuhang

ho-yuhang_BW_327x420Yuhang Ho was born and raised in Petaling Jaya, just outside the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur. He took a degree in engineering at Iowa State University in the US, but opted for a career in TV production when he returned to Malaysia. His debut feature MIN in 2003 was financed by television and shot on digital video, but was invited to many film festivals as a film and won the Special Jury Prize at the Festival des 3 Continents in Nantes, France. His subsequent features and shorts have been invited to an ever-widening circle of festivals and have won several more prizes, including the NETPAC Award and the Tiger Award for Best Short at International Film Festival Rotterdam (for SANCTUARY and AS I LAY DYING respectively). It was followed by RAIN DOGS, which became the first Malaysian film to enter the Venice Film Festival in 2006. His widely anticipated AT THE END OF DAYBREAK received the NETPAC Award at the Locarno Film Festival and garnered seven Best Actress Awards for lead actress Kara Hui. He won the Financial Times Emerging Voices film award for his short TRESPASSED in 2015. His latest film is MRS K, a Malaysia-Hong Kong co-production.
