Luo Runxiao, born in 2000, is a Chinese director and screenwriter. Knowing early where his true passion lies, Runxiao began learning filmmaking on his own and shooting documentaries at the age of 16. Currently, he is an undergraduate student studying film production at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. His debut short film, Hair Tie, Egg, Homework Books, is selected into the 78th Venice International Film Festival - Orizzonti Short Film Competition. Runxiao is the youngest Chinese filmmaker in history, at the age of 21, to enter Venice International Film Festival. Runxiao seeks to make realist films that revolve around one's search for true-self and explore themes such as the destructive nature of hyper-masculinity, as well as the roots and effects of violence.
