synopsis
Susi, as a blind young woman, has grown up with a naive dependence on her older sister Laura. As Laura helps Susi prepare for her first date, we get a glimpse at the distressing, obsession that has actualized in Laura.The film conveys the complex dynamic and co-dependent relationships between the sisters. Although the older sister, Laura, is not the blind one, she cannot see the true reality, and she insists on inappropriate possessive relationship. 'Like Sugar On the Tip Of My Lips' is about Laura's feeling of lost, and love that comes from pain. Over the course of the story, we also witness younger sister's self inner revolution to freedom and courage.

She attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2006-2008), and trained as a visual artist and filmmaker. Her first feature film, "Actually, Adieu My Love" won "Best Debut Feature" from 2009 Toronto Female Eye Film Festival. Her Recent Short film, "Like Sugar on the tip of my lips" has selected as Director's Choice -3rd prize for 30th Black Maria Film and Video Festival. She aspires to be a director and to make artistic films. She listens very carefully to the instincts of her unique voice. She follows her intimate desire to share stories. She has worked within the reconstruction and collection of memories, imaginative dreams and art, and her distinct perspective of life. She often observes women's emotional changes and experiences, and she attempts to reconstruct into story, their struggles and triumphs as she interprets them through her own eyes. She is currently working on a short film, "The Unpardonable Night", about a young boy uncovers the darkest secret of his family. She is also currently writing two feature screenplays while she is pursuing an MFA Film Directing at Columbia University.
