Hidden from the world’s TV cameras, life under Myanmar’s junta of terror in the aftermath of last year’s military coup has been largely invisible. As an act of creative resistance, the anonymous Myanmar Film Collective risked their freedom as well as their lives with cameras in-hand to document what’s happening in their country. An extremely urgent and artistic piece of citizen journalism that asks the question: how does it feel to be forgotten by the world?
‘A fragmentary work with no narration or captions to give context. In their different ways, however, its poetic meditations and its footage of terrible events are hard to forget.’
Edward Porter, Sunday Times

Plan your visit
Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
