The Venerable W.
Fri Apr 19: 7.00pm
Sun Apr 21: 7.00pm

Barbet Schroeder
Switzerland & France
1h 40m

** Co-presented with CAIR-WA! Joining us in a facilitated conversation on Apr. 19 will be CAIR-WA Executive Director Masih Fouladi, Professor Mary Callahan, leading local expert on Myanmar and Burma, who incidentally sat next to Ashin Wirathu on a recent flight, and Emmanuel N. Muvunyi, President of the Rwandan Community State of Washington, who will speak to the connections between the Rwanda genocide and what's happening to the Rohingya. **

The Islamophobic Burmese monk known as The Venerable Wirathu has led hundreds of thousands of his Buddhist followers in a hate-fueled, violent campaign of ethnic cleansing, in which the countrys tiny minority of Muslims were driven from their homes and businesses and penned in refugee camps on the Myanmar border. Barbet Schroders portrait of this man again proves, along with his General Idi Amin Dada (1974) and Terrors Advocate (2007), that the director is a brilliant interviewer, allowing power-hungry fascists to damn themselves with their own testimony. His confrontation with Wirathu is revelatory and horrifying.  FilmLinc.org
