This is a multimedia essay by Matt Brandon and myself. We first approached this essay thinking we wanted to help preserve 2 dying trades among the Mamas in Penang, butchering and fish mongering. Through the process of making this we found out that, while we may have felt sad that these trades are dying out, this current generation is content to be the last. Their children are the first generation to become professionals among them.
