We created this subtle protest film based on "FREEDOM" to illuminate the peaceful stand of Aung San Suu Kyi and her Democratic Party. She came back to Burma from Europe when her mother's health was ailing. Once she arrived in Burma she was put under house arrest because she spoke out for freedom.
With that background we created a film where various people (in America and worldwide) spoke out for "Freedom" in many languages. Participants include President Clinton, President Bush, great musicians, artists and "everyday" people who expressed their feelings.
We chose this way to protest verses showing the massacres and beatings of the army. It worked! When we finished the film it was shipped to Norway and from there it was beamed to Burma where 16 million people saw it. Aung San Suu Kyi won the Nobel Peace Prize.
This film was completed in 2006/7. The world has now changed (a little) for Aung San Suu Kyi and hopefully for the rest of the world as well.
