    Over 370,000 students from Mainland China are enrolled in American high schools and universities – six times more than a decade ago – with $11.4 billion contributed to the American economy. Visually striking and thematically complex, Maineland captures the coming-of-age transformations of two affluent Chinese teenagers with big American dreams as they settle into a boarding school in small-town Maine, sharing poignant discourses on alienation, personal identity, and cross-cultural dialogue. Maineland has gotten wide critical acclaim, won Special Jury Prize at SXSW and the Independent Film Festival of Boston, is a NYTimes Critic’s Pick and recently reviewed in the New Yorker. The film has been featured on NPR’s Here and Now, PRI The World, Fast Company, and the Boston Globe.
    Miao Wang is a Beijing-born New York-based filmmaker. Her award-winning documentary features Maineland and Beijing Taxi, and short Yellow Ox Mountain have screened at over 100 international festivals and institutions such as SXSW and the Guggenheim Museum, with US theatrical release, broadcast nation-wide, and digitally released globally on multiple platforms. She directed Made by China in America, a documentary short in Morgan Spurlock’s acclaimed We the Economy series. She also direct, produce, and edit award-winning branded content and shorts for agencies and clients such as Ogilvy, DuPont, Philips, Microsoft Design, Guggenheim Museum, and Vice Media. In collaboration with Abramorama, Maineland is completely a US-wide theatrical release, followed by a digital release on Amazon in late 2018.
