SUMMARY

“On The Inside of a Military Dictatorship” takes its audience back to when the military made their master plan for a so-called disciplined democracy in Myanmar and wrote a very scripted role for their enemy no. 1: Aung San Suu Kyi. In a dramatic way, the film builds the character- and story set-up to take us anew into the crisis we know from the news – however, with a radically different perspective. The story is based on unique acces to the key players in this complicated reality, including Aung San Suu Kyi and previous President Thein Sein. It’s the story of how power struggles unfold and how political enemies can end up being closer than the ones they claim to fight for: the people. The audience gets deeper and deeper into this complex world of power driven by peculiar characters and even astrology.
