The story of estranged sisters brought together by their mother's death, I Carried You Home recently received post-production assistance from Busan's Asian Cinema Fund. The ACF also backed the project's script development.
Here's the synopsis from the festival press release:
Pann and Pinn are sisters living in the wake of their mother’s death at the core of this time-shifting road trip drama. Despite communication difficulties from years apart, the women slowly reconnect as they ponder about loneliness, abandonment, and the secret that tore them apart.
Tongpong, schooled at Rangsit Universiety and London Film School, previously directed the 30-minute short Wings of Blue Angels, which included Ananda Everingham and Sinitta Boonyasak in the cast.
There's more about I Carried You Home at the film's website.
The New Currents selection also includes a Burmese film – Return to Burma, by Burmese-Taiwanese director Midi Z. It's the story of an expatriate Burmese filmmaker returning to his homeland to see how it's changed.
