Killing Time (10’08”)



A humorous look at an endearing teenager living in Yangon. Tall and skinny ‘Little Baby’ finally gets up at noon to begin his day of watching television, playing video games and singing off-key with his mates in a karaoke bar – rounding things off with a game of football in the evening. “As a child all I did was sleep and play” he says, delightfully oblivious to the irony of his own words: “Now I’m older, I’m much more aware”.
