Burma VJ: Reporting from a Closed Country
Evidently a documentary was up for an Oscar this past year. VJ stands for Video Journalist. It was made from pieced together video documenting the situation in Burma. This is the story of the Buddhist monk led uprising in 2007 against the military junta running Myanmar.
The film was made in Norway. The video footage had to be smuggled out of Burma. Norway seems to have a strong voice of support broadcasting back into Burma via radio. Here is a a link to information about the film
Here is a trailer of the movie
Here is the link to an unrelated video of Karen residents flight to safety
Thanks Jason for the lead on this story.
