Bright Like The Sun

Kaung Myat Htun gets ready for a day working alongside his family in a suburb on the outskirts of Yangon, the capital of Myanmar. As he goes about his chores, he shares the contents of his electric mind, explores the golden setting dotted with pagodas and temples, and reveals that he is no ordinary human…

Seemingly divorced from the violent surroundings of Myanmar, and shot months before the country’s lethal coup, Bright Like the Sun is an innocent, hopeful slice-of-life depiction, blending reality with imagination – an ethereal, suggestive fantasy that takes place in one of the hardest settings for a boy to grow up in, on Earth.

Directed by Thida Nathalie (UK)
