Finland tour film crew documents Myanmar cotton industry


THE Alternative Tourist documentary team from Warner Bros, Finland, filmed various locations in Mandalay yesterday including weaving houses applying natural dye to fabrics, construction of hand and machine operated looms, Mandalay mountain and its surrounding, U Bein Bridge, Zay Cho Market, Gaw Wein Jetty, and the evening scenery.

In the past few days, the same team travelled to Wundwin Township where they filmed locals cultivating cotton in Payar Su Village. They also filmed the cotton cleaning process at Aung Kabar factory and the dyeing, drying and steaming processes at Mya Thazin textile factory.

The team will visit Yangon from 24 to 26 October where they will continue to film at Unique HTT Garment and Maple Garment in Shwe Lin Ban Industrial Zone.

The entire process from cotton field to finished garment will be broadcasted as a documentary on Finland’s YLE National Channel. It will also include Myanmar’s captivating scenery and hopefully aid in attracting more tourists.
