Ho Yuhang was born and raised in Petaling Jaya. He graduated with a degree in engineering at Iowa State University before opting for a career in filmmaking. His first feature length film ‘Min’ won the Special Jury Prize at the Festival Des 3 Continents in Nantes in France and earmarked him as one of the most talented young filmmakers to emerge in Asia in recent years. His subsequent features and shorts won more prizes, including the NETPAC Award and the Tiger Award for Best Short at the Rotterdam International Film Festival. This was followed by his third and most renowned feature film so far – ‘Rain Dogs’ – which became the first Malaysian film to be nominated in the Venice International Film Festival in 2006. Yuhang was a finalist for the mentorship of Martin Scorsese in an arts mentorship program initiated by Rolex. His widely anticipated fourth feature film ‘At The End Of Daybreak’ is due to be released in late 2009.
