Burma documentary showing at Clapham Picture House

Clapham Picture House Burma

On Tuesday Clapham Picture House is showing a one-off screening of Burma VJ: Reporting from a Closed Country, a compilation of real-life camera footage by under cover video journalists in Burma which Empire calls “Captivating and essential viewing.” It’s been compiled and produced by Anders Ostergaard and is said to play out like a thriller, made all the more impactful by its harsh reality. Following the screening is a live satellite Q&A session with the director, a member of the Democratic Voice of Burma and a representative of the Burma Campaign UK. There are only limited tickets left, so book now.

Note Love Clapham’s favourite clubbing accessory in this video: massive sunglasses when you’re inside. Oh yes. An after show party has also just been announced for an additional twenty smackers at The Coronet in Elephant & Castle. Eric Prydz will be playing, if that helps tempt you to part with your cash.
