A Teenager in Yangon
As Myanmar emerges from its decades-long military dictatorship and embraces rapid economical change, its citizens strive to adapt to an ostensibly more liberated and open way of life. The country is redefining its identity, and this change is most reflective in its teenagers. Often considered the canaries in the mine for social change, teenagers, by nature, are also in the process finding their identity. Yeir Yint Aung (Damian) has Western dreams and local concerns. His struggles are both a part of normal teenage life, but also mirror the conflicting ideology of a country undergoing rapid change.
