Burma: An Indictment shows the inhumane conditions the gentle Burmese people suffer every day. Watch families snake across the Thai border to receive the most basic health care. Experience the hell of a man who was kept in solitary confinement for fifteen years. Listen to the monks—now living in exile—who started the “Saffron Revolution.” Witness the squalor of the Tal refugee camp and view shocking footage of Cyclone Nargis victims. Burma: An Indictment exposes a wealthy country whose people are starving in the streets, helpless at the hands of a brutal military dictatorship.
 
Jeremy Taylor is the Executive Director of Free Burma Alliance, a coalition of human rights and humanitarian relief organizations dedicated to bringing freedom to the ill-treated and oppressed people of Burma. He produced and directed the feature documentary Burma: An Indictment about the xenophobic military junta of Myanmar, formerly Burma. Mr. Taylor published the highly regarded quarterly, Film Festival Today (FFT) before converting the enterprise into a Web-based publication at www.filmfestivaltoday.com which features popular video interviews with directors of issue-based films, Movies That Matter, and he has a weekly live call-in TV show in Manhattan about human rights: www.stepuptime.com.
