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.
We accompany 5 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 lives of people between past and present. Their struggle to fit their repressed biographies into a freedom yet to be gained.
