Singapore Art Museum Southeast Asian Film Festival 2013 Poor Folk

Ah Hong and his sister make an illegal crossing into North Thailand from Myanmar via a smuggling syndicate, and arrive at Dagudi town. Ah Hong works first in Bangkok then Dagudi, but his sister is taken away by the gangs as their mother has sold her to them. Their stories unfold in two parallel narratives along with the experiences of other overseas Burmese, some of them living illegally, but all in the name of seeking a better life. This border town story weaves between dreams, Tolstoy, amphetamines and durian. Midi Z was born in Myanmar and educated at the National Taiwan Institute of Technology. His graduating short film, Paloma Blanca (2006) screened at several international film festivals. His other shorts include Motorcycle Driver (2008) and Hua-Xing Incident (2009), which was produced by Hou Hsiao-hsien. His first feature Return to Burma (2011) was in competition at the Busan International Film Festival and the Rotterdam International Film Festival.
