Burma Storybook

For many Burmese people, poetry has been a source of hope and resiliency, helping them survive the military dictatorship’s total control over the country. In this 2017 documentary, take a cinematic trip to Myanmar and see the country through its people’s eyes and poetry. Burma Storybook centers around the 70 year-old activist and writer Maung Aung Pwint, as he navigates life after his imprisonment and the long-awaited return of his son returning home after two decades of political exile.
