TOY Lei is a native New Yorker who is a California transplant. She’s had a fascination with action movies since her parents took her to Chinatown to watch kung fu movies and her in-depth participation in THE HURRICANE FIST (which was an homage to that genre) debuted at Comic-con. Last summer she worked with two-time Academy Award director Alejandro Innaritu for eight days on his Oscar-winning CARNE y ARENA which debuted at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. After lamenting the lack of roles for Asian females over 30 especially with the “fun” stuff, she began writing and producing her own projects. Her directorial, writing and producing debut, THE WEDDING, won the Top 5 Women Filmmakers award from the AAFilmLab Shootout/NYWIFT. She continued to win awards with BOXER and HOW TO GET CAUGHT
