Marc invites us on his special journey to Thailand, to discover the life of the Mokens, who freely explain their lifestyle.
The Mokens have lived along the coasts of Thailand and Myanmar for centuries. They spent their lives on their boat-homes, called kabang, sailing from island to island, subsisting on the fruits of the land, and those of the sea. The Mokens only lead a semi-nomadic life now, but whenever they can, they set off as a family on their boats, journeying for days or even weeks, perpetuating a traditional maritime way of life that has characterized their identity and culture.

Extract from the documentary: “People of the sea – Thailand, The Mokens, last of the nomads”
Direction: Nicos Argillet
Production: DÉCOUPAGES & ARTE France
