Burma VJ : reporting from a closed country by Anders Østergaard( Visual )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Burmese and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anders Østergaard's ... documentary ... is a rare and exceptional look into the 2007 uprising in Burma (Myanmar) where 100,000 people, including thousands of Buddhist monks, peacefully took to the streets to protest the country's repressive regime that has held them hostage for over forty years. During the uprising, the military turned their guns on the peaceful protestors, and blood spilled in the streets. Foreign news reporters were banned and the internet shut down. But Democratic Voice of Burma, a collective of thirty anonymous and underground citizen video journalists (VJs), heroically bore witness to the historic events and secretly videotaped what they saw. Through a dedicated network of supporters, they smuggled the footage out of the country, where it was broadcast via satellite to a world horrified by the violence against a people fighting for democracy. Risking torture and life imprisonment, the VJs vividly documented the brutal clashes with the military and undercover police -- even after they became targets of the authorities. Burma VJ represents their inspiring stories of courage and hope and the undying spirit of a people fighting for freedom"--Container

Burma VJ( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Burmese and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed filmmaker, Anders Østergaard, brings us close to the video journalists who deliver the footage. Though risking torture and life in jail, courageous young citizens of Burma live the essence of journalism as they insist on keeping up the flow of news from their closed country. Armed with small handycams the Burma VJs stop at nothing to make their reportages from the streets of Rangoon. Their material is smuggled out of the country and broadcast back into Burma via satellite and offered as free usage for international media. The whole world has witnessed single event clips made by the VJs, but for the very first time, their individual images have been carefully put together and at once, they tell a much bigger story. The film offers a unique insight into high-risk journalism and dissidence in a police state, while at the same time providing a thorough documentation of the historical and dramatic days of September 2007, when the Buddhist monks started marching
Shadow of The Holy Book( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The filmmakers expose the complicity of several of the world's most powerful multinational corporations in supporting the repressive regime of Turkmenistan and its President for Life, Saparmurat Niyazov - support that continues even after his death. In oil-rich Turkmenistan, the Ruhnama, written by Niyazov and central to the dictatorship, has been integrated into the educational system, and the larger cultural system. The film documents how this pervasive text helps and is helped by, the corporate entities who seek to profit off Turkmenistan's resources

Aung San Suu Kyi : Lady of No Fear( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The daughter of General Aung San, a key figure in the liberation of Burma from colonial rule, Aung San Suu Kyi had recently earned a Ph. D. in economics from the University of London when she returned home to Burma (the name favored by pro-democracy supporters over "Myanmar") to care for her ailing mother. It was a time of political unrest, and in response to the violent quashing of 1988's student demonstrations, Suu Kyi picked up the family mantle of social activism and formed the National League for Democracy - an act that resulted in a series of house arrests spanning two decades, and the creation of a human rights icon. In this program, the family, friends, and colleagues of the Nobel Peace Prize recipient share memories of Suu Kyi as a daughter, wife, friend, mother, and political leader while discussing the impact her detention had on their lives. Filmmaker Anne Gyrithe Bonne had no access to Suu Kyi while this documentary was being shot, but makes use of interview clips of "the Lady" herself commenting on her role in Burma's struggles"--Container label
