An American in Burma: "Beyond Rangoon"

; Wisdom Quarterly

"Beyond Rangoon" is a full-length Hollywood motion picture set in Burma. Aung San Suu Kyi had just won democratic elections. But rather than lead the country, she was arrested and prevented from ever taking office. She was only released in 2011. Instead, the military took over and set up one of the world's most abusive authoritarian dictatorships. One American gets left behind has to find a way to get out of the dangerous capital and beyond Rangoon to Thailand.


"The Lady" also depicts Burma and Aung San Suu Kyi's struggle
