Rate this:
This Academy Award nominated documentary shows a rare inside look into the 2007 uprising in Myanmar through the cameras of the independent, underground citizen video journalist (VJ) group, Democratic Voice of Burma. Risking torture and life imprisonment, the VJs vividly document the brutal and bloody clashes between protesters and the military and undercover police-even after they themselves become targets of the authorities. Through a dedicated network of supporters, they smuggled the footage out of the country, where it was broadcast via satellite to a world horrified by the violence against a people fighting for democracy.
