Inspiring Thailand Refugee Kids
No matter where you are, children are out future. In a small Thailand village, Burmese refugee children share hopes and dreams for growing up.
The woman in the poster is Aung San Suu Kyi. She is is a Burmese opposition politician and the General Secretary of the National League for Democracy. Suu Kyi is known as a really positive, and inspirational figure throughout Burma.
While visiting this village, the filmmakers brought a couple flip cameras, which are cheap, easy to use, and shoot in full HD video! They let the kids in the village use one for the day (all the shaky footage you see), and they loved using the camera, and documenting their village so much that they ended up giving them one of the cameras to continue documenting their village. They are going to work with their art teacher who took them to the remote village, and who is also a journalist, and he's going to take care of charging the cameras, and transferring the footage to a computer. He's going to teach them documentary techniques, and will give them little video assignments.
