‘Burma VJ’ — Auntie Underground

Seomra Spraoi / Friday 19th November / 7pm–10pm

‘Burma VJ: Reporting from a Closed Country’ is a 2008 documentary film directed by Anders Østergaard. It follows the September 2007 uprisings against the military regime in Burma. Some of it was filmed on hand-held cameras, and the footage was smuggled out of the country. Other parts of it were reconstructed, which caused controversy.
