Australian Premiere

Presented by special guests Director Petr Lom and Producer Corinne van Egeraat

A portrait of a country emerging from years of military dictatorship, told through Burmese poetry.

The documentary circles around the story of the country’s most famous dissident poet alive today, Maung Aung Pwint, as he recounts a life spent in exile and in jail and waits for his long-lost son to return home.

A story full of poetry - in images, language, structure and form.
