Ash Goh Hua
Ash Goh Hua (any pronouns) is a filmmaker and cultural worker from Singapore, based in New York. They create documentary and experimental based work informed by the politics of abolition and autonomy, utilizing a subversively collaborative filmmaking process to build collective power. By challenging and exposing dominant ideologies in their storytelling, often through intentional usage of archives and anachronistic formats (Super8, VHS), Ash’s films show different imaginations to demonstrate the possibility of liberated futures.
Ash has been supported by programs and fellowships by Sundance, Jacob Burns Creative Culture, NeXtDoc, If/Then, and NYFA. Their films have screened and won awards at film festivals internationally, and have been distributed by PBS and Third World Newsreel. Ash is also a Common Notions collective member.
