Drowning A Thousand Islands is a rare and beautiful look at an area of Shan State that is largely inaccessible. Decades of violent conflict has displaced over 300,000 people from an area slated to be the site of the largest hydroelectric power project in Southeast Asia. The film documents this violence, and the resilience of villagers who flee further and further from the Salween River.
