ETHNIC Chin refugee and filmmaker Colin Laltanpuia, 29, almost teared up as he listened to children from his community share their dreams for the future.

The recent Limkokwing University of Creative Technology graduate had spent over two months filming more than 60 ethnic Myanmar Chins throughout Malaysia for The Chin Up Project, a collaborative effort with several refugee advocate groups to highlight the cessation of refugee protection for the ethnic Chin community.
