Burma VJ: Reporting from a Closed Country


Tonight, I am very lucky to have watched “Burma VJ” from the start till the end of the screening time at Meta House.  This is a documentary film which you should not miss if you are interested in journalistic work.

The film shows a group of young video journalists who try to bring news about the protesting in Burma in 2007 to the outside world. For them, capturing news out to the world is more important than their own safety because sometimes they have been arrested by the police officers that they don’t want journalist to broadcast news about the protesting. Some parts of the film was shot on hand-held cameras and the footage was smuggled out of the country mainly by internet and was later broadcast back to Burma and the world via satellite.
