Eva Knopf | Myanmar, Germany 2017 | 79 Min. | OmeU
Until recently Myanmar (also known as Burma) was a military dictatorship closed off from the rest of the world. Ever since a democratisation process started, the country opened up – politically as well as economically. Investors and multinational companies see Myanmar as the last blank spot on their map of globalization and hope for huge profits in the yet “untouched” market. Filmmaker Eva Knopf allows the audience to experience the profound change the country is experiencing by featuring Burmese people and their attempts to navigate between the new opportunities and their traditional values.
