'deafening silence' is a fusion of beauty and terror, observation and anger, roving visuals and intimate stories either funny, contemplative, or horrific -- a subjective, layered depiction of Burma under brutal military dictatorship. My first trip was legal, shooting video as fake tour guide doing research; the next was on foot, under-cover with ethnic Karen guerrillas, surviving a free-fire jungle war zone. .... a living history of a country arrested in time, a hybrid documentary focusing on ethnic genocide, but with constant poetic resonance and a rich multiplicity of references to history and popular culture.
