Born in Singapore, raised in the US and Switzerland, Flo worked on film sets across Europe before graduating in film from the Zurich University of Arts. His thesis CORPUS was among other things nominated by the German Film Academy for Best Narrative Short. In 2012, Flo continued his studies at NYU’s MFA film program.


Since 2014, Flo has been developing two feature screenplays. 50 MILES FROM BOOMTOWN which was selected for the Creative Producing Lab at Sundance in 2015 and is a semi-finalist at the Academy Award Nicholls screenplay competition and 2020, a thriller-esque movie set in today’s post-truth news era.


Meanwhile, Flo also directed BETWEEN  to which the head of the German television channel ZDF, who produced early work from Jarmusch and Wenders, wrote: “An oppressive study of a boy, told quietly, precisely, atmospherically dense, with haunting, sometimes even metaphorical images“ and a slightly strange short called SOUSAPHONE which is currently playing at film festivals near you.
