Julian Doan is a second-generation Vietnamese American filmmaker. He enjoys exploring the uncomfortable corners of our existence through awkward, yet heartfelt comedy. His latest short film, “Raspberry”, which premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, explored the humorous and tragic experience of witnessing death and saying goodbye.
He is currently writing the feature film from which Raspberry was lifted, based on his lived experiences of losing his own father. It explores the mundane absurdity amidst tragedy of a family desperate to preserve their father’s life and struggling through the end-of-life process. It combines observational comedy with deep empathy for its characters, and is inspired by works such as “Force Majeure” and “Still Walking”.
He is also an editor and assistant editor and is currently wrapping HBO's revival of “In Treatment”. He loves corgis, the outdoors, and looks forward to seeing a Vietnamese American film renaissance in his lifetime.
