The Dream (14’14”)


Kachin Baptist Brang Sai from Myitkina in northern Myanmar claims that the idea to found the orphanage he runs with his Lisu wife once came to him in a dream. Blending frank interviews with quiet observation of its driven protagonist, his wife and son and his adopted multi-ethnic family, this portrait helps explain this complex man’s somewhat daunting personality.

Twenty-four year old English graduate Khin Myanmar’s interest in film began as a teenager when her Burmese film editor father U Kyaw Zwar first regaled her with stories of filmmaking. Although she claims she is ‘too shy’ to be a director and would rather stick to editing in the future, she is nonetheless committed to making ‘good films’ – and to one day founding a television channel in Myanmar to broadcast them.
