Biography of the director

Nu Nu Hlaing (born in 1988) comes from a village in Bogalay in Myanmar’s Ayeyarwaddy delta. Following the devastating cyclone Nargis that swept through the delta in 2008 she came to Yangon where she attended courses in journalism run by capacity building organisation Myanmar Egress and later worked for the Myanmar Peace Centre. Since joining Yangon Film School in 2012 she has worked on numerous documentaries as a sound recordist. Mother At Arms, which won the top Diamond Award at the 2017 Goethe Institut Myanmar Documentary Awards, marks her first film as a director in her own right.
