Using Documentaries to fast track Myamar minority & Peace at Mandalay & Sintgu

by Kyalyi November 17, 2016
It has been two month since we introduced Khaw than, https://www.engagemedia.org/Projects/khaw-than/ ,Films on Myanmar minority and peace screenings that allows audience to assess, Human rights and peace dialogue at Yangon, Mandalay & Sintgu .

After we screened our first screening at Yangon on 26 Oct with Phanteeyar , we forwarded moving on our next screenings at Mandalay and Sintgu ( Lat Pan Hla ) on Nov 10, 11 and 12 with Metta Campaign and Rainbow Organization Sintgu.

Over 300 audiences for 3 screenings at Mandalay & Sintgu make more effective discussion times with filmmaker Lei Lei Aye for her women rights film “My Mother is Single’ and her awarded film of  & Proud Film Festival ‘Soul Mate’. We also screened our top documentary film “Sound of Silence ‘’ which won in Spain Gerona Film festival and ‘’I wanna go to school’’, awarded film of Human Rights & Human Dignity Film Festival.

“This screenings has revolutionized our thoughts about minorities,” said Transgender woman, Ma Phyo  from Rainbow Organization Sintgu. “Through these video interviews, we get a deeper understanding our right and can know peace building more effectively with current Myanmar situation.”

With the New Year season quickly approaching, we have a plan to move on for our two final screenings at Yangon on Dec 14 and 15 and so that you can visit and discuss with our filmmakers & our engagemedia team.
