Dinh Thai

Dinh Thai’s family fled during the Vietnam War, making a 5-year stop in France before immigrating to the US. He quickly acclimated to American culture, making many friends from diverse heritages and absorbing 80s and 90s pop-culture. This cultural mix is the foundation of his life. Recently, Dinh wrote and directed his first narrative piece since graduating college titled Monday. It’s a project that captures elements of his colorful suburban childhood — part fiction and part autobiography. The culmination is a fast-paced, quick-witted story about a young Asian-American hustler who struggles with the moral implications of his illicit occupation. Monday has won multiple festival awards and placed first in HBO’s inaugural APA Visionaries contest. It’s currently being developed into a TV series. Dinh is a partner of a small production company called Art and State, located in downtown Los Angeles. His company focuses on creating advertisements and branded content for various ad agencies from conception to delivery. www.dinhthai.com
