Since graduating she has made numerous short films including Close Ups, Last Time and Blind Body. Her most recent work blends documentary and fiction with family or other Cambodians as subjects. The docu-fiction hybrid The Plastic House (2019) is her first solo mid-length film which screened at Visions du Réel film festival, Melbourne International Film Festival and New York Film Festival.
