RANGOON COCOON (excerpt)

There are many Buddhist monastic schools in Burma but Kyakhetwine monastery in rural Rangoon is exemplary in many aspects. Not only does it offer Burmese, Arithmetic, Languages and IT classes to its pupils, but also it accepts all children, whatever their religion or wealth.

SYNOPSIS : Burma is a land of creation, innovation, inspiration. A cocoon where a thousand metamorphoses take place and a thousand butterflies take flight. Filmmaker Anne Murat and photographer Brice Richard captured a glimpse of that little known side of Burma. Through 66 interviews and portraits of social, intellectual, religious and artistic pioneers, they bring forth the image of a country not chained to the past, but soaring toward the future.
