"The Republic of the Union of Myanmar, also known as Burma, has been historically invaded by various cultures for thousands of years. It was a British colony from 1824 to 1948, the year in which it finally managed to become independent.Subsequently, numerous military governments succeeded each other, systematically violating the human rights of their opponents (generating hunger, genocides, and rapes of women and girls with the so-called ""rapists battalion""). The sole objective of this action was to dominate the land and the territory, and the natural resources of its more than 100 ethnic groups. Since independence, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar went through brief democratic periods, always aborted by military coups. Just in the elections of March 15, 2015, it has its first head of civil state. Since that date, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar maintains a certain democratic stability. The transition towards the self-determination of their peoples is constantly under pressure, since they must continue to resist the pressure of the State in order to live in their territory.In this context, two young people that work for an N.G.O. called PUNTO, travel through the country visiting indigenous communities and work together on a territorial mapping with a camera and a drone."
