Ash Mayfair was born and raised in Vietnam, and received her MFA in filmmaking from NYU. Her short films — including “The Silver Man” and “No Exit” — have been screened at numerous international film festivals. THE THIRD WIFE is Mayfair’s first feature film, and the screenplay won the Spike Lee Production Fund in 2014. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the NETPAC Jury Award, and also won awards at the San Sebastian, Milano, Chicago, Minsk, Kolkata and Cairo film festivals. Ash is working on her second feature, tentatively titled SKIN OF YOUTH, about an all-consuming love story between a transgender singer and a dog-cage fighter set in 1990s Saigon, Vietnam. When asked about advice she has for other female directors, Ash replied "preserve your own voice. Fight for it. Lift other women around you. Fight for them." Read her full interview here!
