Eric Roache is an independent filmmaker and visual storyteller from the United States currently living in Hanoi, Vietnam. His first two short films have been selected to film festivals in the U.S. and Australia. He has volunteered and worked in international development in several countries around the world, but ultimately was called to tell diverse human stories through film with aim of bringing people of different backgrounds together. Having just moved to Hanoi, he is currently working on starting up a live music video series in Hanoi. He also hopes to mentor and collaborate with young local filmmakers of Vietnam.
