I OPERATE ON MY OWN FREQUENCY
Inexhaustibly curious, native New Yorker, and child of the arts, it is only natural Angela Wong Carbone started her film career when she was discovered in Rome, Italy. Her first feature film, Terra (Winner, experimental film at Pesaro Film festival) was directed by duo Marco De Angelis and Antonio di Trapani and sent her onto the indie circuit. Her latest films, Longing (director Christian Mushenko; best dramatic short Big Apple Film Fest, award of excellence One Reeler, Winner London Independent Film Fest) Shield (director Yijie Mei; Korean American Film Fest), Delay (director Tin Tang; NewFest official selection) and feature Sugar Land (director Lorenzo Lanzillotti; Festigious Film Festival (Best Short, Best Actress), Oniros (Best Director Nomination), Feel the Reel (Best Short, Nominated Best Actress, 2nd Best Editing) Premiere on FilmShortage as Film of the Week ) have cemented her as an international film actress and collaborator.
Angela trained at NYU's Stonestreet Studios for screenacting, with Anthony Abeson, and at Cornell University for theater, where she also holds a degree in Architecture. Angela is a designer, welder, and writer for film and media.
She is an award winning screenwriter. Her latest film, Postmarked, was executive produced by Lena Waithe after her script won her a spot in AT&T Hello Lab’s Mentorship Program in 2019. She is a contributing writer for activist Eileen Kelly's Killerandasweetthang. Her stories and recipes appear in Lulu Gioiello’s Far Near, a continuing book project on East Asian identity, and Alex Chester’s Hapa Mag.
She is currently developing several projects, including series The Labors of Lulu, with E! star Camrus Johnson and former Sundance TV, IFC and NBC executive Evan Shapiro.
