Film Platform to support Myanmar

Film Updates

A man who escaped with his family to avoid military forced persecution used the little money on hand to buy a fish net. Unable to get work in the refugee area, he set his nets in the river to fish to survive. In Chin State western Myanmar, a massive military crackdown took place and many houses and villages in the demilitarised zone were burnt down. He and his family, who were farmers have been forced to leave their villages where they have livestock and homes, and are now forced to live in desperate need of 'peace'. What are coups and violence taking away from innocent people? One fisherman's voice tells of the urgent situation.

What is Docu Athan?

“Docu Athan" is an online platform to support Burmese creators (journalists/filmmakers/artists etc). “Athan” means “voice” “opinion” in Burmese. Viewers can donate "Athan" to fund creators to create new works.

In Myanmar, many civilian lives have been stolen by military violence and journalists and innocent civilians have been unjustly detained.

Journalists, who were taking on the role to report the crisis in the country, and artists, who were freely expressing themselves, have been forced to flee.

Creators in hiding or in exile continue to create films in spite of harsh repression by the junta to tell what's happening in Myanmar.

In the wee hours of 1 February 2021, Myanmar’s military staged a coup against the democratic elected government and arbitrarily detained senior government officials, including the head of government, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi. This shocked Myanmar's citizens and plunged them into despair. Citizens then began a large scale of protests.
