Hands Around in Yangon

Hands Around in Yangon - Myanmar

In Hands Around in Yangon, Moe Satt records the hand movements of people around him, from laborers working on the streets in markets, to local artists and his friends. There are moving hands, working hands, eating hands and communicating hands. He collects the many stories of those hands. The film emphasizes the almost autonomous character of the ingrained movement it follows. The hands are shown as if they are independent from their owner’s mind and rather integral to the activity they are pursuing.
