BLOOD AMBER-Still 2 2.jpg

THE STORY

Somewhere in Myanmar is a forest rich in amber and controlled by the Kachin Independence Army (KIA). Most of its inhabitants work in a mine, digging the earth night and days in the hope of finding the precious ore that will get them out of poverty. But on top of the excruciating hardship of the work, they also have to fear an attack from the army.

Quelque part au Myanmar se trouve une forêt riche en ambre contrôlée par l’Armée pour l’indépendance Kachin. La plupart de ses habitants travaillent dans une mine, creusant la terre jour et nuit dans l’espoir de trouver la précieuse résine qui les sortira de la misère; mais plus que la pénibilité du travail, ils craignent les attaques de l’armée.
