Screening of “Sittwe” Documentary about Conflict and Segregation in Rakhine State
Please join us for a screening of Sittwe, a short documentary film about two teenagers separated by conflict and segregation in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. Produced as a tool to facilitate discussions about peace building in Myanmar, the film was due to premiere in Yangon at the Human Rights, Human Dignity Film Festival but was banned by the government. It later premiered at the Freedom Film Festival in Malaysia, where it was awarded the Best Southeast Asia Short Documentary. Following the screening, there will be a Q & A with producer Myo Win, an imam and leader in the interfaith peace movement in Myanmar.
This event is sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic. Lunch will be served.
