Yu-Ying (Sally) Wu 吳郁�'�began her career by collaborating as an editor with David Sutherland on his FRONTLINE series, Country Boys, which aired on PBS in 2006 (IDFA). She was a co-editor on HBO's “Run Granny Run” (SXSW 2007) and was also the editor on Sutherland's PBS series “Kind Hearted Woman.” She produced & co-directed The Mosou Sisters, the story of two spirited daughters from China's last matriarchal society, which was funded by ITVS and aired on PBS's Global Voice in 2014. She also co-produced Sutherland’s new film "Marcos Doesn’t Live Here Anymore" (2019). Her debut feature documentary “The Good Daughter” was nominated for Best Documentary in the 56th Golden Horse Film Festival and won Best Documentary and Best Editing at the 2020 Taipei Film Festival. The Good Daughter is a portrait of the complicated marriage between Long, a disabled Taiwanese man, and Azhe, his Vietnamese bride. Their union results from Long’s wish to obey his overbearing mother and Azhe’s self-sacrificing effort to help her impoverished family. The Good Daughter is an unflinching look at one woman’s epic struggle to balance her family obligation to support her relatives in Vietnam with her duties as a mother and wife to her family in Taiwan.
