Insein Rhythm (10’45”)


Insein Rhythm is a humorously edited portrait of the sights, sounds and rhythms of Yangon’s Insein railway station – but a stone’s throw from the country’s infamous Insein prison.


Director: Soe Moe Aung, Camera: Han Lin Thwin, Sound: Nu Nu Hlaing, Editor: Kyaw Myo Lwin, Project Mentor: Lay Thida, Editing Mentor: George Cragg
