We’re told at the start of this movie that most Burmese can write poetry or can recite a poem by heart. Poetry in Burma is an art for the common people. But what if poetry comes into collision with a repressive military regime? Maung Aung Pwint is Burma/Myanmar’s most famous living dissident poet who has been jailed many times by the regime. This is his extraordinary film poem to the people who live there in a movie that is spectacularly shot capturing the everyday joys, loves and resistance of an undefeated people.
