Director Biography:

Born in Kyaukphyu in Rakhine State in 1985, Hnin Ei Hlaing entered the film industry with a diploma in computer art with the Forever Group and subsequently worked as an editor for

MRTV4. Since joining YFS in 2006 she has worked as a regular sound recordist and/or editor on a number of Yangon Film School productions (including An Untitled Life, The Change Maker and A Bright Future).
