Film description

Midi Z

Born in 1982 in Burma, in a family of Chinese origins. At the age of 16, he emigrated from the country looking for work - he found it on construction sites in Taiwan. Meanwhile, he studied directing. In 2009, he was accepted into Taipei Golden Horse Film Academy, founded by Hou Hsiao-hsien, as one of the most promising directors of the young generation. His films provide a unique insight into the reality of modern Burma, and are regularly shown at international film festivals. His "Ice Poison" was awarded in Edinburgh and Taipei, and was submitted as the Taiwanese Oscars candidate. Midi Z was the guest of Five Flavours in 2013.
