Pyo Chit Lin is one of the very few Myanmar classics still in existence and is the country’s earliest surviving colour film from 1950. The romantic comedy revolves around two friends who move to Yangon to look for work. They meet a beautiful young woman, Kyu Kyu, who lives with her aunt after her parents passed away. Though she is rich and owns her own company, Kyu Kyu is humble and attracts the attention of several suitors, including a police officer, an air force captain, and a writer. Starring many of the major Burmese actors of the time, the film is a precious document of the prolific and vibrant movie industry in Myanmar then. 
The film was restored by the Asian Film Archive in collaboration with the Memory! Cinema Association in 2017, using a sole-surviving 16mm release print. 


Reciprocal 2023 runs from 2 – 25 June 2023. See the full programme here.
