Mai Nakanishi

Born in Tokyo but spent most of her youth abroad, Nakanishi is a filmmaker whose work focuses on genre films with particular emphasis on social horror. Her directing work includes “HANA”, a supernatural horror, shot in South Korea, and "SWALLOW", a female-driven, food-infused body horror shot in Taiwan. Through filmmaking, she hopes to explore sociocultural fears and anxieties lurking in daily life and expand the spectrum of genre films. She's currently developing her first feature length film.
