US Campaign for Burma Screening of Burma Soldier

NEW YORK PREMIERE: BURMA SOLDIER
at The Paley Center for Meida Followed by a Panel Discussion



Join us for an exciting event happening this week in New York City. The Paley Center for Media and the U.S. Campaign for Burma are hosting a screening of the new award-winning HBO film "Burma Soldier." The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Myo Myint, the subject of the film. The screening is on Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 6:30pm.

"Burma Soldier" tells the harrowing and unforgettable saga of a former Burmese soldier who risks everything to become a pro-democracy activist. Through the courageous story of Myo Myint, we learn how the ruling army in Burma keeps its citizens living in terror, demolishing any sign of dissent. Burma Soldier reveals the transformation of an oppressor into a committed activist, protesting against the system that he used to represent. Click here for trailer.
