Burma VJ

Close Up
Director: Anders Østergaard | Year: 2008 | Length: 84 min
Certificate: 12A Cert

Going beyond the occasional news clip from Burma, Burma VJ brings us close to Burma’s video journalists, who insist on keeping up the flow of news from their closed country despite risking torture and life in jail. Armed with small handycams they report undercover; smuggle the material out of the country and have it broadcast back into Burma as well as in international media. An eye-opening story of courage and resilience.

“Watch this and you will long remember Burma – and briefly join a revolution.”
