The Camp

Situated on the picturesque Thai-Burma border, the Mae La refugee camp is home to more than 50,000 Burmese people who have fled the military regime of Burma. This dialogue-free documentary illustrates the lives of people who are dislocated, without international status and without a voice. Set to a haunting soundtrack, this film presents the everyday realities of life in the camp. Some of the refugees hope to see life beyond their self-made community. Others simply embrace each day as it comes.

    In the face of such hardship & uncertainty these beautiful people seem incongruously at peace. Smiling, happy even.

    What beautiful people.
    You could see the love between the generations.
    After seeing the missing limbs, I assumed these people went through hell until they reached this sanctuary.
    And such a clean place, no garbage or human waste strewn all over.
    If these gentle souls end up in Bangkok, their way of life and their humanity will be destroyed.
