The Last Flight

Unjoo Moon Director

Born in South Korea and raised in Australia, Unjoo Moon studied Arts/Law at the University of NSW before working at ABC TV as an on-air reporter and later as a print journalist. Her passion for story telling led her to the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) where she not only won the Kenneth Myer Producing award but where she also met her creative partner, cinematographer Dion Beebe. Together they moved to Los Angeles where Unjoo attended the American Film Institute, graduating with a Master of Fine Arts and receiving the Franklin J Schaffner Directing Award for her work. Unjoo has directed and produced many award-winning films, commercials and documentaries. Her latest project The Zen of Bennett (described by the New York Times as a “tender, touching documentary portrait of the singer Tony Bennett”) is currently available on Netflicks. Unjoo is currently attached to direct the feature film I am Woman, the Helen Reddy story, which she is producing in partnership with Rosemary Blight and Goalpost Pictures.
