The Filmmakers

Ungur & Huang is wife-and-husband artist duo Livia Ungur and Sherng-Lee Huang. Based in NYC, they make films, sculptures, and installations. The duo have exhibited at museums and galleries internationally, including Museum of Modern Art, National Gallery of Art, Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, National Library of Argentina, Bucharest Art Week, Knoxville Museum of Art, Des Moines Art Center, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Open Space Arts Centre, and Spool Contemporary Art Center. Their first feature film, Hotel Dallas, premiered at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival and landed them in Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film." The film won festival awards at Ann Arbor, Santa Fe, FIDBA, and Valletta; travelled with the filmmakers on an American tour sponsored by SouthArts; and was deemed a "must-see" by Indiewire and a "wondrous work of art" by The Huffington Post. Hotel Dallas is distributed by Fandor, Heretic Outreach, and MUBI. Their short film Prodigal premiered at the 2015 Black Maria Film Festival and won festival awards at Montreal Underground, FIVA, and Leiria. Their work has been made possible by grants from the Foundation for Contemporary Art, the Jerome Foundation, and the Yale School of Art.
