THEY CALL IT MYANMAR: LIFTING THE CURTAIN

+ Q&A with dir.Robert Lieberman via Skype

Screening 8.30pm | Tuesday 1st May | Prince Charles Cinema | £7

Astonishing and intimate, this is a rare and unparalleled look at Burma, the second-most isolated country in the world.

Shot clandestinely over a two-year period, They Call It Myanmar lifts the curtain to expose everyday life in a country in the grip of a military regime.  Distilled from over 120 hours of footage, They Call It Myanmar is an impressionistic collage, a journey full of captivating images and interviews including Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, shortly after her release from 15 years of house arrest. 

'A thing of beauty… a hymn to a land that has grown out of the oldest cultures in Asia.’ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

As Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party won seats in the recent, historic by-election, the country is finally starting to open up to the rest of the world.  There has never been a more vital time to see They Call It Myanmar
