The Bagan Empire was first to unify the territory of present-day Myanmar under Burmese language and culture, that grew into a world-renowned centre of Buddhist learning. Host Peter Lee learns how its fabled king, Anawrahta, overcame the dry conditions of his land by taming rivers into canals and weirs which are still used today. As a bigger harvest grew his population, Bagan was ripe for expansion, and Peter takes part in the traditional elephant dance that celebrates a Buddhist pilgrimage of King Anawrahta’s. While the Bagan king wished to turn Bagan into a new Buddhist state, Peter heads to a sacred mountain to see the battle that unfolded between Buddhism and Myanmar’s indigenous animist gods, called Nats. It’s expansion transformed Bagan into a capital of diverse peoples, who each brought their own in founding a new Burmese culture and identity. And the legacy of its temple building still lives on in a strong faith that’s practiced among the Burmese people today.

Myanmar (Burma) is one of Southeast Asia most fascinating countries. For over thirty years, it isolated itself from the rest of the world. This film is the result of an intense and complete historical research centered on one of the most intriguing minorities of Myanmar: the Bayingyi.

The Bayingyi people display some western features such as blue and green eyes, hairy skins, prominent noses and claim to be Portuguese descendants. To document the daily activities of The Bayingyi communities and to trace their historical roots back to the Age of Discoveries,the film crew had access to some remote regions of Myanmar and also to the main cities with important links to the Bayingyi.

This is a testimony about People who has challenged oblivion. A documentary directed by Luis Nestor Ribeiro.
