Burma Soldier

Nic Dunlop 2010

Burma Soldier provides a rare glimpse of a brutal dictatorship seen through the eyes of a courageous former soldier who, quite literally, swapped sides. For Myo Myint is no ordinary refugee. As a young man, he joined the Burmese army, which has ruled the country for almost 50 years; he witnessed atrocities committed by his comrades against his own people. Later, he became a democrat, joining the mass movement led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi; he was jailed and tortured. He fled Burma with a unique and heartrending story.

  • The Path to Piece
    A moving and coherent story with historical context..We are extremely pleased with this film.
    The makers of this film wisely decided to let this brave and charismatic man tell his own Story... The resulting images have a fragile Beauty.
