Evangel Fung


Evangel Fung Evangel Fung grew up in Los Angeles and has been living in New York City ever since she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2007 with a B.A. in English and Linguistics. At the urging of her favorite nonfiction writing professor, she moved to NYC to attend Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and focus on magazine writing. Magazines were folding left and right at the time of graduation, and Evangel decided to try to gain entry into the world of documentary film-making, since, as she said in an interview with her future boss, magazine and documentary film share essential common ground--it's all about knowing how to tell a good story. One year and two PBS Frontline films later, she found herself in the company of the Divided Families Film Team, a group of visionaries with enough passion and drive to convert her to the cause of telling this story of the divided families.
