Dir. Midi Z. Taiwan, Myanmar. 2018, 84 mins.
In Myanmar, an insomniac is advised by a fortune teller that he should become a monk, live in a temple, and eat an apple a day for 14 days. In this moving and personal documentary, Midi Z films the man’s process, an experience that allows him to return to the poverty he experienced during childhood and the religion that deeply influenced his life.
