A film featuring Karen tribe in Burma depicting their aspirations for human rights and peace.

Thailand / 2006 / Friends without Borders, Ma Yim Studio, Karen Group for Friendship and Human Rights

Once upon a time a border was drawn, and the Karen people were divided.

Today those West of the line live with civil war in Burma, while those on the Eastern side have become a minority in the kingdom of Thailand.

Persecution and the effects of protracted war push the Karen from Burma into Thailand. In 1984, the first Karen refugee camp was built. Now in 2006, seven camps on the Thai-Burma border are inhabited by over a hundred thousand people.

In the eyes of the law, the refugees are seen as illegal immigrants waiting to be returned, just like their brothers and sisters who?셶e gone further into the country looking for work, and even the Thai-Karen, whose ancestors planted their roots in Thailand, but still do not obtain the right to citizenship.

This is a tale the people who live in somewhere that is fenced, and in somewhere that is forgotten wish to pass on to the world.
