Switzerland, 2016, 29 min

Ma Yan Chan - Waves of Transition - Trailer from Jonas Scheu on Vimeo.

For generations, the Dockers and their families have lived and worked along the Irrawaddy riverbank in Mandalay, the ancient royal capital of Myanmar. In a time of great political and social transition, their traditional lifestyle is suddenly declared ‘illegal’ leading to a permanent transformation of purpose and place. The authorities intend to dislocate the squatters into newly built concrete buildings. Ma Yan Chan - Waves of Transition is an immersion into a unique and disappearing universe.
