Kian Tjong is an independent filmmaker currently in Troy, NY. Tying the Knot was Kian’s first film; he views it as the perfect combination of his passions in human rights activism and filmmaking. Tjong’s anthropology film ManDove played widely in ethnographic and anthropology festivals worldwide. He is currently working on films: The Momma Sutra and Hakka Cha Cha Cha, both of which explore family dynamics and history of a Chinese Hakka family. Kian received his MBA from the University of Hawaii.
