Like We Don't Exist is a journey through the experience of Southeast Asian refugees. After 70 years of civil war, thousands of Karenni people survive as diplomatically stateless refugees along the Thai-Burma border.
As refugees, the Karenni people possess no official government documentation. They are not permitted to leave the refugee camp, and are unable to find legal work. They have little to no access to education, healthcare, or basic infrastructure.
