Introducing Jacqueline Kim
When I first met Jacqueline, her work in film and television caught my attention. If you haven't seen Advantageous on Netflix, I highly recommend you check it out. Here's a recent article on the work that Jacqueline co-wrote, composed score for, and starred in: "You Need to Watch the Smartest Sci-Fi Movie on Netflix ASAP." It's a film with a lens on ageism, racism, sexism, and the sacrifices of love.
Jacqueline's artistry goes well beyond the screen. It flows into sound and textiles and into social spaces in order to not only reflect the world, but to beautify it. Above all, she is super cool and super kind, and I'm grateful to call her friend.
Jacqueline Kim is a multi-disciplinary artist specializing in sculpture and composition. Her work centers itself in social practice - applying artistry to capture moments, translate them and impact where things are headed. Prior to this work she was known her presence in film and theatre, from her award-winning performance in the operetta, Passion (LA Drama Critics), to co-helming the feminist sci-fi film, Advantageous (Sundance special jury prize). She has dedicated several of her works, including her band’s first album, This I Heard: Songs and Melodies, part I - to her teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, through whom she learned about non-attachment to views and how to build and cherish community. Grateful for this collaboration with Anna to narrate and compose for Seven Year Summer - Jae dedicates her work to her friend, a brilliant human and physician, Catherine Birch Storey.
