Forum of Independents competition to open with Burmese-Czech film The MonkThe MonkThe first independent feature film from Burma in 50 years was created thanks to the activities that Prague’s FAMU film school has been implementing in central Burma since 2005 in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Transition program. Besides co-initiating the first Burmese film festival (wathannfilmfest.net), whose fourth edition will take place in September, it has been nurturing an informal film school whose most talented graduates are currently continuing their studies at FAMU. The Monk is the debut of up-and-coming Burmese filmmaker The Maw Naing. http://www.kviff.com/en/news/2574-forum-of-independents-competition-to-open-with-burmese-czech-film-the-monk/
