Authoritarian folly

Since 1962 an iron-handed dictatorship has been segregating both opposition and ethnic minorities in Burma. In 2007 the monks' rebellion was crushed in bloodshed. In 2008 when a cyclone devastated the country, the military junta closed the doors to international aid. In 2009 two young unknown reporters ventured into the country and shot this informative, yet irony-filled content, eventually published in June 2011. Anyone in the audience can become a distributor.
