12-year-old Zaffan reaches puberty when her body begins to morph at an alarming and horrifying rate. In fear of being labelled as a monster, she struggles to maintain being normal at school by trying to conceal her grotesque self… that is until she decides she no longer wants to hide from the world.



Having graduated from the London Film School with an MA in Filmmaking, Amanda has directed short films based in the UK and also Malaysia. Her short “Lagi Senang Jaga Sekandang Lembu“, premiered in competition at the Venice International Film Festival (2017). The film has continued to travel and win awards in many other international festivals, including receiving a Special Mention at the International Short Film Festival Clermont-Ferrand (2018).

Amanda is an alumna of Berlinale Talents Campus and Locarno Filmmakers Academy. She is developing her first feature film Tiger Stripes, set in Malaysia. In her work, she likes to explore the female body and identity within the context of South East Asia.
