Aung San Suu Kyi Movie

This is a preview for a biopic about the life of Aung Saan Suu Kyi. 

If you don't know who this woman is. she's a modern day Hero in every sense of the word. 

She found herself caught up in a revolution in Burma back in the late 1980's when she was visiting her terminally ill mother only to be pushed to the front of the conflict as a viable leader for a new Democratic Party due to her being the daughter of the Father of Modern day Burma and her educational background. However, despite her party winning the elections in 1990 the military junta in charge nullified the results and she was put under house arrest for 20 years unable to see even her dying British husband or two sons. It's a riveting story and this trailer looks to prove it!

I can't wait to see this one.

Here's to Freedom!  Hopefully someday Burma can be free as it's still under that same military totalitarian government.
