The Road to Mandalay
Midi Z, Taiwan/France/Germany/Burma
Director Midi Z (Ice Poison, Helsinki Cine Aasia 2014) is known for humane portrayals of the destinies of his fellow native Burmese. The story follows two young illegal Chinese-Burmese immigrants in Bangkok, both working towards fulfilling their dreams. The potential couple is however divided by differing long term goals, and their life and choices are affectingly and beautifully drawn on screen.
Sun 19th March 2pm Korjaamo Kulmasali – After this screening, there will be a free talk about the rights of migrant workers in Thailand. See more details here >>
