A woman commutes on public transport and walks through city streets - on her way to work, to meet friends, to visit a lover. 
Someone watches. 
Someone is always watching. 

"From This Angle" is a new, short experimental film: vignettes of a woman being watched and photographed secretly, voyeuristically in public spaces, the threatening, transgressive images underscored by fragments of monologue that tell the story of small and large violences in the woman's life, and her observations of similar violences in the broader world.


The third short film by Ming-Zhu Hii, "From This Angle" draws inspiration from the filmmaking work of Chris Marker, the photography of Miroslav Tichy and Saul Leiter and the writings of Sophie Calle, amongst others.

It is produced by Ming-Zhu, Nicholas Coghlan and Alexandra Curtis. Production is scheduled for August, 2016.
