In the aftermath of the 2021 military coup in Myanmar, many young people are taking up arms against the country’s military rulers. Among them is 18-year-old Naing Myel Htet Kyaw, who insists that violence is necessary, spurred on by his parents who support him. He is one of the youngest rebel fighters who have taken shape as an armed resistance, some of whom have chosen to swap their school uniforms for arms and a jungle camp, willing to carry on the struggle.
Coming face-to-face with fighters at one of the resistance’s secret bases, Dennis and Patrick Weinert report from the embattled rebel territories in this documentary. Though showing themselves as essentially pro-democratic forces, the film documents the fighters’ brutal guerrilla tactics, underscoring that the fight for a democratic Myanmar is far from resolved. Explore the complexities of resistance and the consequences of challenging authoritarian rule in Myanmar, as you immerse yourself in this gripping documentary.
