Jing Shao Wins a Young Director Award at Cannes

Frequent P.I.G. collaborator Jing Shao has just won a well-deserved Young Director Award at Cannes, for his haunting public awareness film “Text History of Jane.” Made while Jing was completing his MFA at USC, the short film unravels a tragedy through the text messages of Jane, a teenage girl. Each text in the film is perfectly written to establish Jane as sweet, relatable human being, which makes the film’s conclusion all the more shocking and unforgettable. P.I.G. is very proud of Jing for his win, and can’t wait to work with him and his directing partner, Jess Zou, for years to come!
