Hey Girl

Hey, Girl!


It’s the Buddhist full-moon festival of Thadingyut and talkative, star-struck teenager Khine Myat Noe is struggling to study for her exams while her large extended family causes chaos around her. As her food-loving uncle ‘Porky’ prepares culinary offerings for a stream of passing monks, Khine’s younger cousins and siblings vie for her attention and her protective older brother questions their uncle’s dubious healthcare suggestions.

Director's Biography

Khin Myo Myat’s family are Inntha and hail from Inle Lake in southwest Shan State in northern Myanmar. Although Khin, who is a trained nurse, had never touched a camera before joining the 2009 YFS Beginners’ course, her winning personality helped her put her young protagonist and the whole family at ease during the making of the buoyant Hey, Girl! She is also the director of Myanmar Midwife, a documentary produced by Yangon Film Services for Swiss development professional Carine Weiss about the challenges for birth attendants and maternity healthcare in rural areas.
