“Lady of No Fear” is the title of a Danish-made film about Burmese political activist and democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi. A newly updated and extended version will be shown by the “Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Thailand (FCCT)” on Tuesday, the 6th of September at 8 pm. The film will also be screened the following day, 7th of September at 7:30 pm at the Bangkok Art and Culture Center (BACC).
”Lady of No Fear” is about the Burmese political activist and icon Aung San Suu Kyi. It is instructed by Danish director Anne Gyrithe Bonne, who will be attending both screenings along with Danish ambassador, Mikael Hemniti Winther.
The film has attracted considerable attention in Europe, where it has been screened at various festivals. One of the reasons for its popularity probably is that it is one of the first attempts to create a picture of the private life of Aung San Suu Kyi.
The film is the result of more than three years of research, conducted by Anne Gyrithe Bonne, which included travels and interviews around the globe, from New York and London to Mae Sot. The film provides a unique portrait, where the viewer is allowed to see scenes also from Aung San Suu Kyi’s life prior to her entrance on the Burmese political scene. The movie which will be shown in Bangkok is an updated 2011-version which includes scenes from Aung San Suu Kyi’s release from house arrest in late 2010.
