A hybrid film by the anonymous Myanmar Film Collective about life under Myanmar’s junta regime of terror, told via intimate and personal stories.
Since the military coup of February 1 2021, which resulted in nationwide protests, thousands of peaceful protesters have been imprisoned and murdered. Alternating between documentary and fiction, Myanmar Diaries is a seamless whole in which the filmmakers find innovative and creative ways to tell personal stories while at the same time maintaining the anonymity of their protagonists. An extremely urgent film made in a time when the subject of Myanmar has all but disappeared from the news.
