The 1996 documentary short Breathing Lessons: The Life and Work of Mark O’Brien won JESSICA YU an Oscar for Best Documentary Short where she quipped, “You know you’ve entered new territory when you realize that your outfit cost more than your film.”
Yu never attended film school but has gone on to direct for television, as well as documentary and fiction features and experimental films – including the 2008 film Ping Pong Playa.
