In the Mountains

In the mountains of Thailand, the Karen hill tribe commune with the land and practise their native tongue, marginalised from dominant Thai culture and confronted by globalisation. Inter-cutting landscape photography, intimate portraiture and anthropological research, this documentary short expounds upon their history and the hierarchical nature of the Thai language. Drawing from the studies of Fr Vinai Boonlue, SJ, it details the extent to which language shapes the contemporary Karen worldview.

When we go to a theater to watch a movie, there is one desire that always crawls our hearts. The desire that the movie comes out to be entertaining. But this one, I assure, will raise that desire to new heights for the movies yet to release in your lifetime

I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves watching Documentary, yes we are far from the reality, but when you are in there watching this, you become a part of the movie and it becomes the reality
