Mrauk Oo Story brings to mind the great Salaam Bombay, or Bicycle Thieves. It’s a 25-minute film documenting young boys who make their living as garbage recyclers among the 16th century pagodas at tourist site Mrauk Oo, in northern Rakhine State. “This is not a Rakhine ethnic story,” director Ko Than Kyaw Htay told the Myanmar Times. “I wanted to tell a real story and show people what is happening in Mrauk Oo. "The film follows the life of a boy who is desperate for love and friendship.”
