Sound and Vision: ‘Burma Storybook’ by Petr Lom & Corinne Van Egeraat – (12+) screening
Sun 17 Oct 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm£03 – £4
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.
