After showing to sell-out crowds on the East Coast, and as featured in the New York Times, the film "They Call It Myanmar" with Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi comes to San Francisco’s Bridge Theater for a week run April 6 through 12. The film has sold out at theaters in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, and is now launching on a tour of Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Shot clandestinely over three years by novelist, filmmaker, and Cornell Physicist Robert H. Lieberman, this film provides an astonishing and intimate look inside what has been the second most isolated country on the planet.

Providing a grand sweep of the country, its people and its troubled history, this visually stunning documentary brings a human dimension to a country that still remains a mystery to much of the world. The Hollywood Reporter has called the documentary “The definitive Burma film…which defies the odds and delivers a compelling portrait that dwells with you.”

Film director Robert H. Lieberman will make special guest appearances in San Francisco at 7 PM screenings on April 6, 7, and 9, and at 4:50 PM on Sunday April 8. Film producer Deborah C. Hoard will appear on at 7 PM screenings on April 11 and 12.

The film has received major coverage on BBC World News

and in the New York Times
