As a medical oncologist, Dr. Cecilia Choi incorporates her three decades in health care as she addresses health, illness, and healthcare disparity in her screenplay. She is the executive producer for the award winning short “Fractured”. She has written and directed the upcoming “Blinded” (short) and “Kombucha Cure” (feature). Palm Sunday is her directorial debut.
“Being from the world of medicine, I felt compelled to tell stories that were based on truth in my world. It is fulfilling to be able to use my medical background in my art: it’s full circle for me. Palm Sunday is a testimony to that.” – Choi
