War War Hlaing

Biography of the director

Engineering graduate War War Hlaing’s family are middle-class Myanmar Muslims. When she’s not helping out at the family’s market stall, she works as a development volunteer teaching life skills or staging plays with Myanmar interfaith peace group IYCAP. Proud of the liberal upbringing she has enjoyed and at having been able to pursue her own interests, she hopes that her first short documentary Koran and Karate will help change prevailing prejudices about Muslims in Myanmar today.
