, Comments 0 comments

For the people of Burma, and around the world, Aung San Suu Kyi has been a symbol of freedom in the face of oppression.

Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Suu Kyi has voluntarily chosen to stay in Burma despite being offered the opportunity to live in exile by the country’s military rulers. Despite her deeply beloved status, questions arise as to her ultimate political motivations and what it means for Burma.

In the documentary Aung San Suu Kyi - Lady of No Fear, Danish director Anne Gyrithe Bonne has interviewed Suu Kyi's closest family, friends, colleagues, and associates to give a multi-faceted view of an icon. From her earliest experiences with grief and deprivation to her struggle for Burmese freedom, Anne Gyrithe Bonne examines what role she has had to play in Burma's saga.

The film will be screened at the Frontline Club in London on January 6th 2011. Following Aung San Suu Kyi’s recent release from house arrest, there has been a strong interest from international broadcasters, human rights organizations and film festivals across the world to screen the film, so this London event offers a unique opportunity to see the documentary.

Director Anne Gyrithe Bonne will be at the London screening and take questions from the audience.
