Mann Pye Phyo Aung

Biography of the director

Mann Pye Phyo Aung (born in 1993) is from Lashio, the capital of northern Shan State in Myanmar. Like many young people in Myanmar, he has volunteered at a number of civil society organisations where he has supported youth projects or campaigned to protect his state’s natural resources. A history student at Lashio University, his determination to shed light on the many hidden stories in his city prompted him to enrol at Yangon Film School in 2018. He is one of the co-creators of Easy Money, a short drama shot in Yangon with a non-professional cast and has also learnt animation techniques at the School. After his short portrait entitled Construction Worker, his second film as a director is Lashio Ambulance.
