Brief Explanation

A Miran Film. Dateline: The Similan Islands: 8.6525° N, 97.6408° E. December 2014 “As The Strait of Malacca, between the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea, has become the heart of World Trade The Moken have drifted along its coastline like satellites off a distant moon - bystanders to growth.” Dan McDougall. Film-Maker. Multi award winning Foreign Correspondent Launching the "exiled to nowhere" film for Oxfam's global Inequality report Asia. Travelling amongst the Moken on the maritime Burmese-Thai border the world they occupy appears, on the surface at least, a paradise of plenty. In the Surin Islands, the closest Thailand’s Moken have to a permanent settlement, home is a curved white beach below a steep incline of virgin forest. The outlook is little more than a turquoise ocean. In the surf children float on scavenged driftwood and container ship flotsam. In the rocky shallows men hunt for sea urchins. But it is a lost paradise. Marginalised and cast out from mainstream society, cut off from their historical land and sea rights, the Moken are prevented from flourishing.
