I woke up in Myanmar

I've been to Myanmar in September 2019. A place where the culture is still really present, and gave me memorable moments. Men dress with longyi (long skirt) and women use thanaka (a white tree-based paste) in their skin. People chew red tobacco and spit it on the street. I saw women smoking big cigars...
With their rural and calm reality, they enjoy their life in a natural way and they don't think twice in giving food to the other. Religion is really present and monks are important in the society. Myanmar has many different realties and the Burmese people make it a special place that will always stay in my heart.

Director Biography - Valentina D'Annunzio

Hi, I'm Valentina and I'm from Switzerland. After completing my Bachelor Degree in Visual Communication I flew to London with the passion of Art, Photography and Film. I did few workshops in Motion Graphics and Video Editing, but only lately I discovered my biggest passion: traveling. This is how I started to mix all my passions and skills... I travel the world and I make video reportages showing my own visions of the different realities I meet.
