    This year's Asian Film Series by Apex Theaters started with the documentary Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry

    , the story of Chinese artist and political protester Ai Weiwei. Next, we were presented with the Japanese film

    I Wish

    , in which a young boy undertakes a journey with the hope of reuniting his family. The film series concludes this week with the final installment:

    They Call it Myanmar


    Myanmar, also called Burma, sits in Southeast Asia. It is one of the poorest countries in the world, and thus is full of violence, treachery, and corruption. Robert Lieberman took his cameras there to capture a portrait of this world, and its people. He shot 120 hours of footage and interviewed over 100 people over a two year period. This eighty minute film is the result of his efforts.

    They Call it Myanmar

    is scheduled to play at Village 8 Theaters until next Thursday, September 27. Village 8 is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Further theater information and showtimes can be found at the Village 8 website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
