Burma Dive sites - Moken, Myanmar Sea Gypsies

Burma Forbidden Islands

Frederique Lengaigne and Klaus Reisinger take their cameras to one of Earth’s last frontiers: the Mergui archipelago of Myanmar, the country once known as Burma. The largely uncharted chain of more than 800 islands, cradled by pristine reefs and turquoise waters, has recently been declared off-limits to outsiders by the country’s government. Few people have ever seen the islands, except for the Moken—seafaring nomads who survive on the bounty of the sea. For months, the filmmakers trail the elusive nomads, explore their ancient customs, encounter rare and endangered animals, and witness the transformation of wild Myanmar—and perhaps the Moken themselves.
