Yangon By Night (43’38”)


In 2007, just one month after the protests by thousands of Burmese monks – brutally crushed by the Burmese military – that came to be known as the ‘Saffron Revolution’, a group of young Burmese filmmakers braved the camera ban to spend a night capturing scenes of ordinary life in Myanmar’s former capital. Their nocturnal journey reveals a city of light and dark in equal measure and a people who, though downtrodden, are nonetheless bursting with life.
