    "

    Mon-Christian director and editor Thet Hsu Hlaing came to Yangon from Mon State in 1998 to take up studies in religion and feminism at the Myanmar Institute of Theology. A physics graduate, she joined the Myanmar Baptist Convention in 1999, where she now works as a film editor. Her own experience as a single mother may well have influenced her choice to depict the world of women in her two workshop films The Bag and My Family, both of which she directed and edited at the Yangon Film School.
