Rangoon Cocoon | When Burma takes flight

Headlines claim, Burma is a land of blood and tears.
A land of raised fists against raised batons.
A land scarred by cyclones and drug trade.

And yet, Burma is also a land of creation, innovation, inspiration. A cocoon where a thousand metamorphoses take place and a thousand butterflies take flight - rock stars and intellectuals, journalists and bar owners, high tech monks and transsexuals, contemporary artists and daredevil entrepreneurs. Even caught in a nightmare, Burma never stops dreaming.

Photographer Brice Richard and filmmaker Anne Murat 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 towards the future.

The documentary presented this year at UCLA is the fruit of the 15,000 pictures and 40 hours of video they brought back. More than a tribute to the enduring spirit of the Burmese people, ?Rangoon Cocoon ? A story of Burmese Butterflies? illustrates how the faintest flapping of wings can herald the most profound changes.

Samples of the documentary are available online at www.rangooncocoon.com.
Prints of the photo exhibition are available for purchase at www.bricerichard.com.
