ABOUT

Isaak Lê is a creative producer currently living in Oakland, California.  

Prior to living in the USA, Isaak co-founded a media production company in Vietnam that helped a diversity of entities—from large development organizations to neighborhood co-ops to transgressive artists—tell their stories through words and images. His diverse work in human rights has led to some interesting collaborations with governments, broadcasters, museums, non-profits and artists.

In addition to his production work, Isaak co-founded an artist collective and an international film festival.  He also ran the video side of an international music festival.

I recently participated in the teaching artist-in-residence program with The Great Wall of Oakland and Oakland second graders. Our team named themselves the Panteras Negras.  From what I could tell this was not politically motivated--they just liked the animal.  We did lots of little things: played the Exquisite Corpse drawing game, danced a ton, colored GIFs, shot video, took film photos, interviewed, acted and roared.  It was fun.  

A ten minute film was screened May 1st during Oakland Art Murmur at the Great Wall of Oakland outdoor site at West Grand Avenue and Valley St.
