Now that Myanmar – you may know it as Burma – is opening up there are opportunities for filmmakers to show us the real country.  This is an almost intoxicatingly colorful look at the country by Patrik Wallner of Visualtraveling. This is a wholly positive look at the struggling nation and as such we get monks, temples, face powder and lots of smiles! 

Believe it or not Wallner created this beautiful film (and hats off to Jean-Claude Vannier for the wonderful music too) while he was on holiday in the Southeast Asian country.  He says “I was going to Myanmar, a nation that I have placed close to my heart and visually strikes me as one of the most photogenic countries I have even seen.”  I have to agree.  This is a simply stunning snapshot of the country.
