This 13-minute film provides a rare glimpse into the remote heart of Karenni State in eastern Burma and the life of the Yin Ta Lai, of whom only 1,000 remain. Footage depicts a unique cultural heritage and the biodiversity of deep rain forests which will be lost if the Salween dams are built. The film also includes interviews from the residents near Mobye Dam reservoir who had to flee and still have not received electricity. Released in May 2008.
