ခရီးမထြက္ပါဘူး မငယ္ႏုိင္။ ညက Raffles hotel မွာျပသတဲ့ ဘားမားဗီေဂ် ကုိ သြားၾကည့္တယ္။ ၿပီးေတာ့ ဒါ႐ုိက္တာကုိ ဗီဒီယုိ ကြန္ဖရင့္စ္နဲ႔ အေမးအေျဖ လုပ္တာကုိ ၾကည့္ေနတာနဲ႔ အိမ္ျပန္ေနာက္က်သြားတယ္။

အခုညက်ရင္ စင္ကာပူက လူ႕အခြင့္အေရး လႈပ္ရွားသူ ဆီလန္ရဲ႕ တကုိယ္ေတာ္အႏုပညာျပပြဲ ကုိ သြားေရာက္ အားေပးစရာရွိတယ္။

မနက္ျဖန္ တေန႔လုံးကေတာ့ စင္ကာပူဒီမုိကရက္ပါတီကလုပ္တဲ့ “ဒီမုိကေရစီနဲ႔ လူ႕အခြင့္အေရး Workshop” တခု သြားတက္ရမယ္။

တနဂၤေႏြေလာက္က်မွ ပုိ႔စ္အသစ္တင္ႏုိင္ပါမယ္။ ဒါေပမယ့္ ဘေလာ့ဂါမဟုတ္တဲ့ တျခားသူေတြေရးတဲ့အထဲက ေကာင္းတာေလးေတြကုိ ညပုိင္းမွာ တင္ေပးႏုိင္ေအာင္ ႀကဳိးစားပါဦးမယ္။

Sharing a message from the organizer of "Burma VJ screening in SG" said...

A message sent by "Gavin L "to the members of Burma VJ - Screening in Singapore.

Subject: Burma VJ - Last night's fantastic turnout that left some with unhappiness

Due to constraints on the organisers such as

1. NC16 rating at a uncommon venue - We needed to adhere to stricter than usual licensing responsibilities placed upon us. Hence we had to turn certain people who were without Photo IDs. The film was shown uncut. Rated films are not necessarily cut.

2. Limited Budget - this film has been hold for a while because we wanted to expose the film to as big an audience as possible. Jubilee Hall was in fact the biggest we could afford for a one-off screening. Jubilee Hall is bigger than the usual venues of the National Museum and the Substation combined. It was with the generosity of the Embassy of Denmark that we could secure this venue.

2nd screening

The SFS is non-profit society TOTALLY staffed by volunteers who aren't paid. We do it out passion for the film-arts. Burma VJ was made free because it is seldom with certainty that events can be self-funded. It was also imposed upon us that this was only a once-off screening for Singapore when we were allowed to screen this film. Now that we know with certainty that there is an audience for this film in Singapore. We will try to secure another screening for those who missed out the first time.

Hope this helps ease some of the unhappiness felt last night

and

Thank you to EVERYONE who turned up last night.

how many Burmese there?

Ko Paw said...

The theatre capacity is 380 seats. It was a full-house. About 100 persons were turned away since there was no more seats. We were lucky as we arrived a little earlier.

Eventhough I didn't count the number of Burmeses, there were quite a number of them. Some of my friends who were late also had to turned back after arriving.

Ko Paw,

Because of your post, I managed to watch this movie. This is quite awe-inspiring. The willingness of Burmese VJ in this documentary to put their own lives at risk for the world to see the brutality of military junta and the sacrifices of Burmese people for the sake of freedom and democracy is simply exceptional.

I just wish Joshua could build a new network of VJ from scratch for the next big thing in Burmese politics.

Ko paw, thank again for the info.
