MTSU International Film Series Tells Stories from China, Burma

A 2012 documentary, “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry,” will be shown Wednesday, Oct. 9. This film follows an internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist and his clashes with the Chinese government. The screening will take place in Room 103 of the John Bragg Mass Communication Building. This event is free and open to the public.

On Wednesday, Nov. 13, the presentation will be “Burma VJ.” This 2008 documentary tells the story of the Democratic Voice of Burma, a collection of young video journalists, who filmed protests and smuggled the footage into Thailand. Their story is part of the battle of a free and democratic Burma, now known as Myanmar.

All documentaries in the series are free and open to the public. All three will be presented at 7 p.m. in Room 103 of the John Bragg Mass Communication Building.

The MTSU International Documentary Series is sponsored by the Office of International Affairs and organized by the Global Studies Program.
