Myanmar’s Killing Fields
by Evan Williams
United Kingdom 2018, 47′ (v.o. sott.)
A Dispatches special edition from a multi-award-winning team of producer/reporter Evan Williams (Escape from Isis, The Hunt for Boko Haram, Unreported World) and director Patrick Wells (Isis and the Battle for Iraq).
For the past five years an undercover network of Rohingya activists have been risking their lives to secretly film evidence of years of repression, violence and mass murder by the Myanmar authorities.
Dispatches has been given exclusive access to hundreds of their videos and the first ever interview with the network to provide the most complete account of how ethnic tension degenerated into what some are calling state-sanctioned genocide, and ask whether Myanmar’s leaders – including Nobel Prize-winning Aung San Suu Kyi – could be held accountable for the atrocities committed in Myanmar’s killing fields.
