They Call It Myanmar, A film by Robert H. Lieberman, Doc, 70 min., in English.
"The film provides one of the ultimate functions of a documentary, taking us into the life and culture of a people most of us would never know."-Mick LaSalle, San
Francisco Chronicle

The story of Burma, told with stunning footage shot clandestinely over a 2 year period by filmmaker Robert H. Lieberman. It provides an astonishing and intimate look inside at what has been one of the most isolated countries
on the planet, lifting the curtain on the everyday life of the people in this land that has been held hostage by a brutal and superstitious military regime for 48 years.

A revealing interview with Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi conducted just after her most recent release from house arrest is interwoven with extensive interviews and interactions with Burmese people from all around this incredibly diverse nation. The film, culled from over 120 hours of striking images, is an impressionistic journey that leads across the vastness of Burma. It traces the history of Burma from its beginnings in the ancient city of Bagan, through colonial times, recent uprisings, the devastating Cyclone Nargis that killed 150,000 people, and up to the present day.

During Lieberman's time in Burma he shot video constantly, even though it was forbidden and risky for him to do so. And now this rare footage forms an unexpected and expressive portrait of a place they call Myanmar.
