Khin Myo Myat
It’s the Buddhist full-moon festival of Thadingyut and talkative, star-struck teenager Khine Myat Noe is struggling to study for her exams while her large extended family causes chaos around her. As her food-loving uncle ‘Porky’ prepares culinary offerings for a stream of passing monks, Khine’s younger cousins and siblings vie for her attention and her protective older brother questions their uncle’s dubious healthcare suggestions.

Khin Myo Myat’s family are hail from Inle Lake in southwest Shan State in northern Myanmar. Although Khin had never touched a camera before joining the 2009 YFS Beginners’ workshop, her winning personality helped her put her young protagonist and the whole family at ease during the making of her film. Khin Myo Myat is currently working on a documentary about maternal health and the role of traditional birth attendants and mother support groups in rural Myanmar.
