Hi there! Welcome to our crowdfunding page!

About the Director
Kyaw Shoon Le Yee Is an aspiring writer-director. As a Burmese having lived in Singapore since young, she is positioned between two cultures and identities. Despite so, she embraces the unique outlook of the dualities. With a discourse that is largely feminist and of moral rightness, Le Yee's filmmaking approach is grounded in women centric stories. With the basis of intimate narratives, she personify the many delights and struggles of womanhood into the visual form.
In a society where women's clothes are considered dirty, Sandar hangs her skirt outside the house. A blunder that causes their fellow Burmese neighbours to criticize Sandar for her improper act and her parents for not teaching her right. Governed by traditions and rules that she does not agree with, Sandar seeks to escape. It's the only way. As tensions rise within the family, Sandar makes a bid for freedom from traditions that pin her down.
About the team
Behind the director is a team of leaders.There is no most important creative department - all will need to work together to piece the different fabrics of the film. As the producer, Linnet Ong, makes it her mission to build the opportunity for stories to unravel creatively. As their support, Joanna Wu, the assistant director, dedicates her interest for both analytical and creative expression, to establish discipline in the process.
But what is a film without visuals?
Xin Yun, our cinematographer, wishes to paint the colours and motion of Sandar’s extensive world through her lens, believing that the film’s immersive pictures would leave audiences with an experience that goes beyond the screen. In support of the visuals, Khairul Ameer, the production designer, intends to transport audiences through a journey of momentary escape via his visual designs, bringing imaginations to life.
A film is beyond the visual. The audio grounds the reality of the film; it makes or breaks the fabric of realism of the story. Angel Ho, our sound designer, intends to delve into minute details, tune into sensitivities, to destroy and construct a story so the narrative can be propelled and uncovered— hopefully one that will always move, stir, and rouse.
Last but not least, the story goes through the final eye. The editor holds the crucial role in piecing the materials together, elevating what was already captured. With her edits, Renee Ng intends to convey crucial emotional and story beats with creative image sequencing, forming a unique language suited for each piece of work.
These may be the introductions for the heads of departments, but we should not forget the entire team on this production. A film is not realising a person's dream but many with the same vision and we hope to have your support too!
