SUNDAY SCREENING: Inside Burma: Land Of Fear (1996)

21st Century Wire says…

Our weekly documentary film curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE.

This month, the story of Myanmar’s (Burma) ethnic minority Rohingya refugee crisis is dominating news headlines. To better understand the current crisis, it’s important to examine the history of political upheavals in the country. We’ve found this film which details some aspects of the country’s recent power struggles, including mass civil unrest and violent military junta from the 1960s to 1990s.

“A prison without bars, over a million Burmese citizens have been forced out of their homes and thousands upon thousands have been massacred & tortured, as well as subjected to slavery. In Inside Burma: Land Of Fear (1996), John Pilger goes undercover to expose the treacherous slavery that thrives in modern day Burma.” Watch:
