The working group traveled across Mekong region – Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Vietnam to film the story of young organic farmers for publication. The project successfully produced 4 short films that allow the YOF’s voices to be heard by larger international audiences. The films have been promoted through both online and offline channels. The project published the video on Youtube, Facebook and website as well as screening the film in the conferences and exhibitions.
The films were warmly welcomed by the audiences so far. The positive feedback includes inspiration, beautiful footages and narration as well as the representation of voices from different areas in the Mekong region. The project faced some obstacles along the way, for example, language barrier and Immigration regulation. However, with firm support from the Towards Organic Asia network, the team overcame the shortcomings and pushed the project forwards successfully.
