Premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 1997, Quentin Lee’s first feature Shopping for Fangs opened to critical acclaim during its limited theatrical release in the U.S. Lee wrote, co-directed (with Justin Lin), produced, and distributed Fangs through Margin Films, a company that he founded in 1997.The success of Fangs paved the way for Lee’s second feature Drift where he returned to a more personal realm. He produced, wrote and directed Drift, a drama that became a hit on the gay and lesbian film festival circuit and was sold to Wellspring Media. Drift was also released theatrically to critical acclaim in Los Angeles.Praised as a “perceptive illumination of Asian American life... at once a tender love story and a psychological suspense drama,” Ethan Mao is Lee’s third feature as a writer/director. The film was sold to TLA Releasing in the U.S. and was also sold to the UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China. An exploration of his emotional attachment to Hong Kong, 0506HK is Lee’s first documentary feature.
