Summary, etc.:
Anders ?stergaard's award-winning documentary shows a rare inside look into the 2007 uprising in Myanmar through the cameras of the independent journalist group, Democratic Voice of Burma. Risking torture and life imprisonment, the VJs vividly document the brutal clashes with the military and undercover police - even after they themselves become targets of the authorities.
