This house is much more than just a roof over our heads“, reflects an adult woman about her old wooden house. It was once a meeting place for some of the architects of Burma’s independence movement, in which her grandfather played a pivotal role. His traces, thoughts and his spirit are still present in the house in which she lives with her family. The film captures the important remembrances imbued in socio-spatial and material relationships that are passed on to next generations. The director, Shunn Lei Swe Yee, is a young filmmaker and she is active in women movements in Myanmar.
