Myanmar Goes Democrazy is a documentary about the ostensible change in a country which suffered a military dictatorship for 60 years.
This country is Myanmar also known as Burma.
In November 2010 the first “democratic elections “ in decades took place.
On the 1st of April 2012 reelections became necessary. Currently the country again faces a huge turning point in its history. Scepticism and Euphoria go hand in hand in daily life.
We accompany 6 people from different social backgrounds and get to know their daily life and biographies. As there is a reporter who shows us her way to freedom of speech, a student who was forced to flee from Burma, a monch who was condemned to house detention.
In 90 minutes MGD confronts us with further subtile but striking stories about the lifes of people between past and present. Their struggle to fit their repressed biographies into a freedom yet to be gained.
Democracy is one step ahead, but hopes and fears of the people need to be heard.
