Presenting Burma VJ

In partnership with Cinema Nova, Open Channel are proud to present a special screening of Burma VJ, the Oscar-nominated documentary comprised of extraordinary footage captured by young reporters in the midst of military rebellion in Burma three years ago.

The film offers a unique insight into high-risk journalism and dissidence in a police state, and - as the journalists become targets of the military - is a compelling reminder of the power of the camera. Burma VJ plays like a thriller, all the more scary because it is true.

BURMA VJ (Anders Ostergaard, 2009, 84mins)
Thursday February 18, 7.30pm
Cinema Nova
380 Lygon St - Carlton
Unclassified - Admission 18 years and over

This one-off screening also includes an exclusive Q&A faciliated by Melbourne-based video journalist Carmela Baranowska.

We hope to see you at what is set to be an amazing event- whether you are an aspiring documentary filmmaker or fascinated film buff (or both).  Special thanks to Open Channel's Elise West for spearheading this event and helping bring Burma VJ to Melbourne for the first time!
