Fisherman Story


In a Myanmar fishing village near Ngapali Beach, a lifelong fisherman battles generations of hardship under dictatorships. He dreams of breaking the sea's vicious cycle for his grandson, shaping a poignant tale of their bond with the ocean.   

'The fisherman has suffered his entire life under both the Burmese socialist regime and the military dictatorship. In 2016, with the democratic transition on the way, he recalled the memories of abuse under dictators and Yangon fish merchants. In the same village, young boys eagerly await their chance at sea but the older generation is reluctant to pass it on. They see it as a life of sin and exploitation by the various dictators.

With the return of dictatorship in 2021, the military has prohibited fishing and blockaded this region. The generation-long fishing tradition faces extinction, along with the village.' - Aung Min
