Film Brief, Budget & Credits

Film Brief In order to increase awareness of issues regarding political prisoners in Myanmar, AAPP actively engages tourists, aid workers, student and school groups. Employees are former political prisoners and visitors to the AAPP office receive a talk from a staff member and a tour of the AAPP museum which includes a recreated cell typical of those in Myanmar jails, frequently used implements of torture, and a photo gallery of the many political prisoners that have died in custody. This documentary was produced to complement this work and was shown to visitors as an introduction to both the organisation and the political prisoner situation in Myanmar / Burma.
