Myanmar Diaries

by The Myanmar Film Collective

International Competition

doc - Italian premiere

(Norway, Myanmar, Netherlands / 2022 / 70’)

Ten short films by young anonymous Burmese filmmakers documenting the junta’s brutality and the courageous resistance to it. The film shows how Myanmar goes from the military coup to nation-wide protests and civil disobedience, to barbaric repression where thousands of peaceful protesters are imprisoned and murdered, to a growing popular armed revolt against this monstrous military junta. Moving organically back and forth between documentary and fiction, the film offers a seamless flow in which the filmmakers find innovative creative ways to keep their protagonists anonymous. A film of extreme and necessary denunciation in a time when Myanmar has almost disappeared from the news headlines around the world.

In collaboration with Centro Amilcar Cabral


The film will be available online on MYMOVIES on Sunday 12 June at 9pm
