Peacock In The Jungle
1 x 30'
This documentary offers an insider's view of the situation of the Burmese freedom fighters struggling for their cause at the border of Thailand and Burma. They want a democratic Burma. Their forces are united under the banner of the All Burma Students Democratic Front (ABSDF).
In this film, two members of the ABSDF, a reporter and an information officer, give the audience an unprecedented insight into the lives of their colleagues.
The reporter, a young Burmese woman, who has been living with her daughter in one of the ABSDF camps in the jungle in Thailand for more than six years, interviews the refugees about their reasons for taking refuge in Thailand and sends this information to the ABSDF office in Bangkok. The information officer works at the ABSDF information office in Bangkok. His role is of the utmost importance: through his press releases he demands international attention for the violation of human rights in Burma.
