As one of the last indigenous sea nomads, Hook must make a courageous voyage deep into uncharted waters outside Myanmar to salvage the remains of his unique oceanic culture.

The film follows Hook from the bottom of the modern social ladder on a voyage into the heart of the Moken’s aquatic territory. On his quest to salvage the remains of his legacy, he faces the universal questions of identity, love, loss and belonging. A unique insight into the words last ocean dwellers.

Press

  • A fantastic film! It is a gentle and generous introduction to the Moken world, which is as precious as it is fragile. Hook is the best representative any culture could have, a man of quiet dignity and resolve. The film is also remarkably visual - just amazing images and colors. More than any other Norwegian film in recent history, this film is important and needs to be seen around the world.
    Peter Eisenstein, Screenwriter
  • No Word for Worry is an aesthetic and thematic shock that anyone with a conscience for nature, culture and the environment must see.
    2014 Eurodok Festival
  • This years "Golden Chair” prize for best Norwegian documentary is awarded to a film which shows its greatness through both visual expression and content. The documentary shows the power to make a difference. This is a universal story about the little man against the big powers. The film is beautifully photographed and has a cinematic style where the scenes are allowed to live and the images to last a long time. The director allows us to be in situations and does not fall for the temptation to overtell. The filmmaker lets us breathe, even under water.

  • Director's Statement

    The Moken are one of the few human cultures left on the planet that point us to what we may have lost on the way to modernity. Today they are the last sea-nomads still spending their entire life at sea aboard their ocean-crossing dug-out boats (Kabang). What is it that they might still offer us in our fast paced lives that we’ve forgotten about? Now under threat, their ways may soon fade and slip away, and the cultural fabric of the world impoverished by their loss. I want to tell the Moken’s story to the world, so we may know them and what they represent, and very possibly learn a thing or two about human development. I will be filming inside the world of one of the most isolated small scale traditional societies left on the planet, the marine nomadic Moken people, who live at sea in the Mergui Archipelago off the coast of Burma, and on Mu Koh Surin; an island group far out in the Andaman Sea on the border between Burma and Thailand. I have been developing this film with them for more than five years and I know them intimately. I count them as friends as much as subjects and that connection will allow me to construct this film.
In the past ten years the population of free-roaming Moken have gone from over 10,000 to well under 2,000. Time is running out. Our main character, Hook, has become a close personal friend of mine. His people have expressed that although they are usually unwilling to relate to strangers (outsiders), they are now
unreservedly positive towards my film initiative and the works of Project Moken.
