Somewhere in Myanmar, twelve-year-old Hung Hsia wears a red wedding dress, the
same color as the blood from the slit throat of a rooster. She has accepted her mother’s arrangement for a wedding to a Chinese man she barely knew, in support of her family. The bird and the Burmese girl stood before the altar a moment ago, as newlyweds – the former as a stand-in for the absent husband.
Myo Aung is a Burmese-Chinese director who began his career as a documentary filmmaker and has recently expanded into fictional short film. His works focus on the present Myanmar and the Burmese immigrants in Taiwan. He was awarded at Golden Harvest Awards for Where We Belong in 2018 and for Fire at Forest in 2020. Rooster was selected into Berlinale and Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia.
