CAST | Sandor Poppinga

Green Short Film TIME | 41′

RATING | ★★★★★

The film concerns the most southern part of Myanmar.
It is as a beautiful homage to the Mergui Archipelago, and a realistic depiction of both its wonders and issues.

The film is very diverse thematically speaking, but it succeeds the most as an ecological cautionary tale.
The film shines the light on an unfortunately huge problem of overfishing and destroying the marine environment but the focus is on Nature. This is presented through stunning underwater photography that offers a superb look at incredibly rich and diverse coral reefs as well as at the indigenous Moken. They are the native habitants of this region.

The film acts as basic introduction on Myanmar in its first part. leads to the maritim environment of the Moken people and ends with an outlook on tourism which is quickly developing in this region.
