This is one of the more interesting documentaries I've seen in recent years. No usual talking heads type thing - for the most part it was just hidden cameras and after-the-fact narration from some of the participants.
The underground reporters surreptitiously recorded the uprising in Burma in 2007. The behind-the-scenes footage is astounding to see and, of course, quite sad knowing how it all ended.
But this will just be another chapter in the eventual undoing of the repressive gov't. First 1988, then 2007. The only question about the next uprising is when not if. Fascinating stuff.
Seek this one out.
