All Fishes go to Heaven


The Wathann Film Fest was inspired in format and design by the Berlin International Film Festival. Its mission according to Thu Thu Shein - the festival's Co-founder and Director - is to inspire local directors to improve the quality of the films created in Myanmar. The festival is held annually in Yangon, and is the first of its kind in the region. Asian Cinema Week brings you a selection of some of the festival's best works.
