Return To Burma

  • 0 นาที



Shot shortly after the recent elections in Myanmar, Return to Burma blends fact with fiction as Xing-Hong, a Burmese labourer of Chinese descent, returns home after a 10 years working in Taipei. Seeing friends and family for the first time in years, Xing-Hong doggedly quizzes everyone on their jobs and personal finances, discovering an absurdly bleak economic reality that has changed little in more than a decade. While government-sanctioned pop songs sing of a democratic Myanmar nobody recognises yet, the director, himself a Chinese-Burmese expat, looks beyond the propaganda and censorship to reveal a country with money on its mind but none in its pockets.
