Kyi Soe Tun (born December 9, 1945 in Yangon, Yangon Division) is a prominent Burmese film director, producer and screenwriter. He served as the chairman of the Myanmar Motion Picture Organization until current head U Myint Thein Pe assumed the position.


Kyi Soe Tun is the son of U Tun Daw Hla. He graduated with a bachelor of science. He began his film career in 1977, and first served as director in 1980 in the film "Chan Myay Per Say".

* "Thu Kyun Ma Khan Pye" or "Never Shall We Be Enslaved" (1997) is about the last king of Burma, Thibaw Min. British and French colonialists interfere in the internal affairs of the Burmese kingdom which leads to its destruction and a subsequent revolt to regain independence. (See also History of Myanmar.)
