Japanese Film Festival in Burma

I was disappointed to hear that a Japan Film Festival sponsored by the Japanese Embassy in collaboration with the Japan Foundation opened today in Burma with the goal of
boosting cultural exchange and strengthening mutual friendship between Myanmar and Japan.
Any government's support of Burma's current regime is questionable and dubious at best.

If you are new to the issue
please click through to the US Campaign for Burma's website or watch these videos:

I had a chance to hear the plight of an escaped Burmese national exiled in Japan while at Kansai Gaidai. The horrors of the Military government's murders and atrocities are disquieting at best.
