A powerful cry of collective condemnation against the atrocities of General Min Aung Hlaing in Myanmar. Cinema as a weapon of defence against dictatorial horror.


Myanmar Film Collective
Corinne van Egeraat, Petr Lom

The Myanmar Film Collective anonymously signs these powerful film diaries to condemn the atrocities committed by General Min Aung Hlaing in Myanmar since the coup d'état in 2021. This young collective of anonymous filmmakers put their lives on the line to show the harsh reality of their country. Mixing documentary and fiction, they build a cinematic monument that conveys the suffocating nightmare that is to live with blatant violations of human rights. Cinema and imagination as a defense weapon against dictatorial horror. A powerful work awarded as Best Documentary at the Berlinale 2022.

"The narrative simplicity of some of his fiction pieces make it more powerful and the documentary parts (...) they possess a raw energy of despair, fury and protest".

— Vladan Petkovic, Cineuropa

"It is both an urgent denunciation of human rights abuses and an artistic work that invites reflection".

— Lee Marshall, Screendaily
