Burma's Open Road
1 x 60'
This film explores the lives of every day Burmese intertwined with the fortunes of the reconstruction of the Burma’s Open Road and the environmental effects it will have on one of southeast Asia’s last remaining wilderness.
Guided by the sage words of a village monk, we enter the lives of opium growers, soldiers, shopkeepers, gold miners, poachers, park rangers and villagers. Where one story ends, another begins, each a separate and telling account of life in Myanmar, each connected only by their comings and goings on the road to an uncertain future.
