The Clinic

(Sei Khen)

Against the backdrop of daily routine in an out-of-the-way private health centre in Yangon, personal dramas unfold in the context of today’s Myanmar.

Two doctors receive patients day and night. At first glance, their clinic in Myanmar's largest city looks like a small corner shop, but inside they are dealing with problems that can’t be dealt with elsewhere. Aung Min and San San Oo are also creative – she is a painter and he a filmmaker. As well as regular treatments, they help people with psychological problems and alcoholism. And they always have time to chat. Conversations cover topics such as corruption, government failure, violence in Rakhine state and the persecution of the Rohingya Muslim minority. Midi Z, a Taiwanese director from Myanmar, captured the dialogues at the clinic that gradually piece together a picture of a country in turmoil as a military coup is about to take place.
