About "Padauk: Myanmar Spring":
"Padauk: Myanmar Spring" takes the viewer to the streets of Myanmar during the heady days following the February 2021 military coup. Through Nant—a young, first-time protester—we meet three human rights activists whose lives have been turned upside down by the coup. As the protests continue, Nant comes to understand the truth of a brutal regime that has continued to wage war against its own people for decades.
Against a foreboding backdrop, Nant’s political awakening regarding the plight of others in her ethnically diverse country gives hope for the future.
Beautifully augmented by poetry and art, "Padauk: Myanmar Spring" shows the resilience and determination of the people of Myanmar, and the sacrifices they've made.
