Summary
Offers a rare inside look into the 2007 uprising in Myanmar through the cameras of an independent journalist group, Democratic Voice of Burma. While 100,000 people (including thousands of Buddhist monks) took to the streets to protest the repressive regime that held the country hostage for over 40 years, foreign news crews were banned from entering the country and the Internet was shut down. Risking torture and life imprisonment, the VJs vividly document the brutal clashes with authorities
