Tony Nguyen

Tony Nguyen made his directorial debut with ENFORCING THE SILENCE (2011), which the Los Angeles Times called “an uplifting portrait” of slain journalist Lam Duong, the first Vietnamese to be assassinated in America. His personal film, GIAP’S LAST DAY AT THE IRONING BOARD FACTORY, winner of the 2015 CAAMFest Loni Ding Award for Social Issue Documentary, streamed and broadcast nationally on PBS. In 2016 he served as an associate producer on the Emmy-nominated PBS Frontline documentary TERROR IN LITTLE SAIGON. His short film, FRESH FROZEN, premiered at the California Film Institute's inaugural DocLands Documentary Film Festival in 2017. Tony lives in Oakland, California. When he's not working on videos and documentaries, he's dreaming about Pizza Palace, Hiroshima style okonomiyaki, and White Castle's impossible slider, which he is anxious to try.
