Padauk: Myanmar Spring (2021, USA, 56 min.) is a new documentary about the protests that erupted in Myanmar following the February 2021 military coup. Directors Jeanne Hallacy and Rares Michael Ghilezan takes the viewer to the streets of Myanmar and through the eyes of Nant, a young, first-time protester, the film follows 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. Augmented by poetry and art, the documentary shows the resilience and determination of the people of Myanmar, and the sacrifices they've made. 

The film will be available for online viewing on Vimeo from October 22, 2021 through October 26, 2021.
