13- Strange Coincidence
Me and my brother caught a screening of Burma VJ, part of a Norway Documentary festival. The movie details the struggles of independent democratic journalists who take the duty upon themselves to report the struggles of Burma (against the govt) and the risks they take on in doing so.
The documentary talks at some length of Aung San Suu Kyi, the house-arrested leader.
And then, in the time span in which we watched the movie, she was RELEASED for the first time since 2003. Released! I was surprised that the film-maker himself seemed so calm about it.
Well, this will roll through the media for some time yet to come. You'll get it.
