“They Call It Myanmar; Lifting the Curtain” reveals the cultural and the political landscape of what was once known as the second most isolated country in the world. Film Director and Producer, Robert Lieberman went into Burma, also known as Myanmar, and filmed covertly for 3 years. Now as Burma is going through a transition of reform, Associate Producer, Harreld Dinkins says “They Call It Myanmar” is more relevant to today’s times than ever before. The film portrays many sociological aspects in the country- from the issues of health and education to the problems of child labor.
