A family of vendors on a Yangon ferry boat


Director and Cinematographer:    Wyn Htut
Editor & Sound Recordist:            Soe Arkar Htun

A purely observational film that succeeds – without any narration – in describing
the life of a family of vendors on a Yangon ferry boat and builds to a nicely atmospheric finish.

Wynn Htut is a professional photographer turned filmmaker from Ayeyarwaddy Division whose first film, Life and Wish screened at Wathann Film Festival in 2013.

He now divides his time between running his own photo studio in Yangon and filmmaking. His most recent works as both director and cinematographer were Father and Son and his second year YFS documentary project, Floating Life.
