They Call It Myanmar: Lifting The Curtain

They Call It Myanmar: Lifting The Curtain (2012)

Starring:

Shot clandestinely over a 2-year period by best-selling novelist and filmmaker, Robert H. Lieberman, this film 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. -- (C) Official Site

War Witch

War Witch (2013)

Starring: Rachel Mwanza,Alain Bastien,Serge Kanyinda,Ralph Prosper,Mizinga Mwinga

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

Moving to Mars

Moving to Mars (2010)

Starring:

The Road to Guantanamo co-director Mat Whitecross explores the politics of persecution by exposing the plight of the Karen people, who were uprooted from their lives following the 1962 military coup in Burma, and who are still searching for a place to call home. In 2009, approximately 150,000 Karen people were residing in Thai refugee camps near the Burmese border. By following two Karen families as they attempt to resettle in Sheffield, England, Whitecross contrasts life in the camps - where community was a crucial component of living - with life in the suburbs - where good fences make good neighbors. Though at first the culture shock sends them reeling, former farmer Jo-Kae and hard-working engineer Thaw Htoo do their best to land on their feet, and build new lives for their families. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Sailing A Sinking Sea

Sailing A Sinking Sea (2015)

Starring:

An experimental documentary exploring the culture of the Moken people of Burma and Thailand. The Moken are a seafaring community and one of the smallest ethnic minority groups in Asia, traditionally spending eight months out of the year in thatch-roofed wooden boats. Wholly reliant upon the sea, their entire belief system revolves around water. Sailing A Sinking Sea weaves a visual and aural tapestry of Moken mythologies and present-day practices. As a viewer you will swim under the sea past fishes and mermaids, sail boats across turquoise waters, land on 13 different islands, step inside sea shanties on stilts, delve into the minds of shamans, become possessed through the worship of sea gods, dance between lovers and emerge drenched in Moken mythology.

Apple Stories

Apple Stories (2012)

Starring:

Hamburg, Rwanda and Shenzhen, China, are the stops of the journey undertaken by Hamburg's documentary filmmaker Rasmus Gerlach in his attempt to trace the line of production of modern mobile phones by example of Apple's iPhone. Can a mineworker, 'starvation wage' not guarantee her family's survival? The film approaches difficult and complex questions that arise in the production procedures of the iPhone company Apple, a vast enterprise that grants the mineworkers in the tin mines of Rwanda little more than the clothes they wear, and puts such pressure on its laborers in Shenzhen that the local suicide rate made it into the newspapers. Much at Apple is reminiscent of Aldi - from the surveillance of its employees to the hostility towards labor unions. The film is structured by an essayistic dramaturgy - one speaks of a "VJ-Doku". Rasmus Gerlach is one of the pioneers of this genre, e.g. with PEACE BRIGADES. For APPLE STORIES he once more traveled alone with a camcorder.
