Sunrise in My Mind

Directed by Danech San
Narrative Short
Cambodia |14 min | 2020

A young woman working late at night at a beauty salon gives into her restrained interest in a young man who spends his evenings driving Phnom Penh’s streets by motorbike as a delivery man.

The opportunity to make films that actually look good is something for which I am extremely grateful. My heartfelt thanks go to my cast, crew, and family who were willing to put up with the whims of a new 19-year-old director.
