I was in Myanmar recently (Feb 2014) and though it is changing quickly, this film nonethless brings back lots of my good memories of where I was and what I saw. Fairly close to the ground, trying to show the real people and that is what I like about it. He did a good job to selecting and editing, choosing what to include in the film. Can't have been easy because it is a fascinating place with much beauty and a lot of sadness
I didn't find it very educational because it only touched issues briefly. I thought that some of the footage was poorly chosen because while aesthetic and potentially shocking it was not comprehensive enough. I appreciate the efforts put into this documentary by the filmmakers and it wasn't bad but compared to other documentaries I have seen it too slow//light in topic.
This recent film was made by an US professor sent by the State Department to teach Physics at a university in Yangon, Burma. In his free time he went around various parts of Burma, talking to people and filming Burmese living conditions. People he talked to are not shown on the film, for security reasons. Footage includes interviews about Burma with Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese Symbol of Democracy.
