The director is from Kayah State, Myanmar, which is in the midst of civil war. For women, both the rebels and the government forces are just objects of violence and fear. She became the first woman who left the town after she joined the filmmaking workshop. If it means “fleeing from the tiger only to come before a hungry lion,” the characters stand as if they were assimilated with the desolate landscape, or as if they were all disparate. The film pays attention to the smallest gestures, movements, and facial expressions of the characters. [HWANG Miyojo]
Born in Bawlakhe Township in Myanmar’s Kayah State. She discovered her passion for filmmaking while taking part in a workshop run by YFS alumni in the Kayan capital of Loikaw.
