Mother’s Gift (short film)

Mother’s Gift (2014) from Girard Tecson on Vimeo.

Synopsis: In a remote village in Indonesia, a young girl gathers recyclables to buy her mother a birthday gift.

I filmed this during April 2014 in Jakarta, Indonesia. I was new in the area and it had very interesting locations, way different that the ones I’m used to in New York. I wanted to film something simple to showcase the location and the people that resides there. It only took 3 hours to film with my trusty Canon 6D with a 24-70mm L lens. It was fortunately screened at Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival and Chelsea Fashion and Film Festival.
