Bringing Burma Storybook HOME: our Myanmar outreach begins

Bringing Burma Storybook HOME: our Myanmar outreach begins

Showing the film in Myanmar is the most important thing we can do with our film. We are thrilled we have this opportunity – largely because of sponsorship of the Embassy of the Netherlands in Myanmar.

Our first screening was in Myeik in the deep south of Myanmar – the hometown of three of the poets in our project – Maung Yu Pye, Mae Yway and Pye.
