Thanks to the Reverend Danny Fisher for the heads-up:

The Oscar-nominated documentary Burma VJ: Reporting from a Closed Country will have its television debut on HBO on April 20th. This is excellent news, bringing a worthy film before a much wider audience. HBO’s site for the film is here. The courage of Burmese journalists daring to criticize the regime and covering the uprising can scarcely be imagined from our cozy perches in the West.

The always well-informed Joel Whitney at Guernica wrote about this film back in March.

The film is directed by Anders Ostergaard.
