A Timothy Syrota Film
54 mins - feature documentary - language: English
Filmed when Burma was staunchly totalitarian, Burmese Dreaming was described by an American
reviewer as a 'documentary poem.’ I consider this apt: the currency of poetry is human emotion and in Burmese Dreaming I sought to engage emotion through music, image and story rather than adopt a more journalistic, narrative driven approach. Burmese Dreaming enjoyed a World Premiere at the United Nations 'We the People's Documentary Festival' and an American Premiere at the Buffalo-Niagra Film Festival.
