Myanmar Diaries

On February 1 2021, a military coup erupted in Myanmar and sparked nationwide protests and civil disobedience. Following the violent repression and imprisonment of thousands of peaceful protesters, there is now growing armed resistance against the junta.

Composed of short films by ten young, anonymous Burmese filmmakers, this hybrid documentary moves between mobile phone footage from citizen journalists and fictional stories that speak an urgent truth. At a time when Myanmar has almost disappeared from world news, Myanmar Diaries is a pressing reminder of the repression and resistance that remain an everyday reality.
