They Call It Myanmar: Lifting the Curtain

Jump to last reply

For anyone who has been, plans to be, or is just interested in: Burma.

"Shot clandestinely over a 2-year period by best-selling novelist and filmmaker Robert H. Lieberman, They Call It Myanmar: Lifting the Curtain provides a rare look at the second-most isolated country on the planet. It lifts the curtain to expose the everyday life in a country that has been held in the iron grip of a brutal military regime for 48 years. This unique feature-length documentary, culled from over 120 hours of striking images, is an impressionistic journey. Interviews and interactions with more than 100 people throughout Burma, including an interview with the recently released Aung San Suu Kyi, are interwoven with spectacular footage of this little-seen nation and its people. Though Burma has tumbled from one of the most prosperous and advanced countries in Southeast Asia to one of the world's poorest, They Call It Myanmar: Lifting the Curtain is a story of beauty, courage and hope. (Partially subtitled)"
