‘Let Sin Kan Chin’ Pyinsa Rasa’s latest exhibition on the art and influence of Myanmar's film heritage exhibition


 Pyinsa Rasa, the new artist collective organising a series of events at the historic Secretariat in downtown Yangon, is currently holding an exhibition called Let Sin Kan Chin honouring the history of the Myanmar film industry. The organisers have created a museum-style exhibition which highlights the filmmakers, artists, musicians, poets and songwriters who influenced Myanmar cinema’s ‘golden age’ as well as their influence on contemporary arts.

The exhibition, which kicked off on March 24th, has featured daily screenings of popular films from the past as well two live music performances to accompany special screenings of Yadanarbon (1953) and Tender are the Feet (1972).

Engaging and interactive displays and exhibits reveal to the viewer the film equipment filmmakers used to work with and the social and political trends that were influencing the style and scope of the film industry from the 1950s onwards.

The final live music performance will take place this weekend on Sunday April 8th with a screening of Thingyan Moe(1985) directed by Maung Tin Oo and it will be followed by a Thingyan performance from the musicians of Jam It! The exhibition will continue with daily screenings of Thingyan Moe at 2pm until the exhibition April 12th when the exhibition closes for Thingyan holidays.
