Into the Current: Burma's Political Prisoners directed by Jeanne Hallacy, is a moving film that sheds light on Burma's unsung heroes – its political prisoners – and the price they’ve paid for speaking truth to power under a military regime. The film is a co-production with the Democratic Voice of Burma and features Bo Kyi’s work to free all political prisoners in Burma while striving to deepen the understanding of their role as political leaders.
After the film, Bo Kyi will address the essential role political prisoners have to play in Burma’s burgeoning democracy movement and in national unity, as well as the sincerity of the recent rapid-fire changes that have taken place in Burma, including a substantial release of high-profile political prisoners on January 13, 2012. He will elaborate on what is needed to solidify these changes and genuinely move Burma towards a sustainable democracy.
