    Screenings of "They Call It Myanmar: Lifting The Curtain"

    Presented by at Kendall Square Cinema

    March 12 - March 13, 2012


    Screenings of

    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)

    Excellent coverage of the film linked to www.facebook.com/theycallitmyanmar and the film website at www.theycallitmyanmar.com for examples of why you might see these two showings.

    Hope to see you there!
