        When Kohinoor – a Muslim Rohingya - fled her home in Myanmar two years ago after a wave of ethnic violence, she hoped for a chance to rebuild her life in a new country. But in India she has found destitution and discrimination. Myanmar passed a law in 1982 which denied the Rohingya citizenship. They are stateless – not recognised as nationals of any country. Kohinoor now lives with a small Rohingya community on a patch of wasteland in Delhi. In this film she talks about their daily struggle to survive and their dream for a permanent place to call home. There are an estimated 10 million stateless people worldwide. Their plight will be discussed during the first global forum on statelessness opening in The Hague on Monday, ahead of a U.N. campaign to eradicate statelessness within a decade.

              Dir./Cameraman/Editor: Taimoor N. Sobhan As boats of Rohingya women and children fleeing persecution at the hands of Rakhine Buddhists in Myanmar are pushed back by Bangladeshi security forces at the Naf river on the border, the world is calling on Dhaka to let them in. But 20,000 Rohingya have already been living in UN refugee camps in southeast Bangladesh since the early 90s, and over 200,000 more live in far worse conditions in unofficial camps at their periphery. This short film depicts the living conditions of Rohingya refugees within a UN refugee camp in Ukhia, Bangladesh. As Aung San Suu Kyi's refusal to speak out on their behalf shows, Rohingyas - described by the UN as one of the world's most persecuted minorities - have few friends. This holds true on the Bangladesh side of the border. The world is calling for Bangladesh to let them in, but it should be careful what it wishes for.

                  Almost one year after a wave of sectarian violence against the Muslim community broke out in Rakhine state, in Western Burma, 70.000 displaced Rohingya are still caged in IDP camps located in low-lying areas next to the sea, near the state capital, Sittwe. The rainy season is approaching, spelling disaster for the Rohingya IDPs living in appallingly precarious shelters. The lack of food and medical assistance is evident and the already abismal hygiene conditions during the rains will worsen markedly. Given the accusations from Human Rights Watch that the government is involved in a campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya, the future weeks do not bode well for them. The government regards the Rohingya as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and does not recognize them as Burmese citizen, despite the fact that most of them have been living in Rakhine state for generations.
