The Healing Power of Film

Angeline Teh, Documentary Filmmaker

 The Healing Power of Film

Malaysian-born Paris-based Angeline Teh is a journalism graduate, and (full disclosure!) a former radio producer and presenter from BFM89.9. From her years producing for radio, she developed a keen eye for uncovering the narratives embedded within the everyday. In 2021, she was awarded a full scholarship and graduated with Magna cum Laude honours in 2023 from the prestigious DocNomads Joint Masters Degree programme in Europe, and has four short films to her credit now, which delicately blend visual and auditory elements to capture the essence of ordinary, yet profound stories. Her debut documentary short, "Reading You" is a deeply introspective piece about family, memory, and reconciliation, and made its mark by premiering and competing in the Southeast Asian Short Film Competition at the Singapore International Film Festival in 2023. The film is now heading to Grimstad, Norway, where it's been selected for the 47th Norwegian Shortfilm Festival Competition in June. We catch up with Angeline to find out more about her budding documentary filmmaking career, and how her works balance the intimacy of personal storytelling with universal themes that resonate with audiences from diverse backgrounds.
