Kristy Hyunsoo Choi makes films across hybrid and narrative formats about memory, freedom, and spirituality through the lenses of Asian femme subjectivity and the Korean diaspora. She is also interested in stories about the material and immaterial labor conditions of creative generation.

Kristy's short film HERSELVES was released by The New Yorker in 2021 and is free to stream worldwide. The film is studied every year at USC and Pitzer College. Read more about HERSELVES on The New Yorker.

Her short film Excerpts from a Field Guide was released by REI in 2024 and is free to stream worldwide.

In 2020, her film Conviction was awarded Best Documentary Short Film at Sidewalk Film Festival and screened nationwide through the Wild and Scenic Film Tour.

Kristy was a 2023 Julia S. Gouw Challenge Winner and is currently in development on two narrative features. She also produced an Emmy-nominated episode of the "Asian American Stories of Resilience and Beyond" series for PBS WORLD Channel.
