Burma VJ: Reporting From a Closed Country

Loading...
"Anders Østergaard's...documentary... is a rare and exceptional look into the 2007 uprising in Burma (Myanmar) where 100,000 people, including thousands of Buddhist monks, peacefully took to the streets to protest the country's repressive regime that has held them hostage for over forty years.
