Under the watchful eye of a retired general in the Kayan New Land Army, a group of men and boys from all walks of life, religions and ethnicities in Myanmar get to grips with their addiction at a remote rehab-cum-boot-camp tucked away in the hills of Kayah State.

Director Chit Moe Pio (27) is from Kayah, Myanmar’s smallest state. After studies in social science he attended courses in leadership, peace and conflict before joining a Peace and Development Initiative in Rakhine State where he first came into contact with media as a tool for social development. Since enrolling at Yangon Film School in 2018 he has attended a number of courses including the School’s ‘True Fictions’ programme during which he co-wrote and co-filmed the short fiction film The Other Side of the Tracks. For his first documentary, Going Home, he returned to his native village in Kayah State where his hill-farming family pursue a way of life unchanged for centuries. Filmed in just two days in a remote part of Kayah, Mountain Camp marks his second documentary.
