The Burmese director Wai Mar Nyunt originally graduated in art from the University of Yangon. She taught Art History for a number of years and she still displays her own artwork. The last couple of years Wai Mar has gotten more and more involved in the film media. The beginning was the participation in a workshop by the film school of Yangon. Wai Mar Nyunt’s first effort as a director, the documentary ‘Happy Days’ was a significant success that made her quit her former job. The film is a portrait of her 13-year-old neighbor, Shoon Lei. Wai Mar next films were both made on request of local NGOs. ‘My Positive Life’ is about the everyday-life of an affectionate and humorous social worker, infected with HIV. ‘Sun Behind the Clouds’ describes a health worker in the state of Kachin in the north part of Burma. Wai Mar Nyunt’s work is among other things rewarded with a scholarship to the Czech Republic as a student of FAMU, the Czech Academy of Film and Performing Arts in Prague.
