Mrauk Oo Story


Amidst the ancient city of Mrauk Oo, a group of young boys earn a living by collecting plastic among the ancient pagodas. With the introduction of a modern electronic device, conflict arises and grows among the boys.  

'It is one of TEN MEN Production's teaching films. With the aid of workshop members from Rakhine, Mrauk Oo state, we shot among the ancient pagodas, and the boys making a living by collecting plastic among those ancient pagodas. It was done using non-actors and were only given simple instructions. Within the five days of workshop, the actors developed deep connections with the roles and were able to express themselves. When the movie was made in 2015, Mrauk Oo was a relatively peaceful town but now the city is on the brink of becoming a warzone in Myanmar's civil war.' - Aung Min and Than Kyaw Htay
