Video Release


"FACING THE FIRE" - A new video release.

Borderline Video has just produced a 25-minute documentary showing many of
the dramatic events suffered by Karen communities during the Burmese Army's
1997 dry season offensives, both in Karen State and along the Thai-Burma

This debut video by Borderline Video features events that drew responses of
international outrage, such as the forced repatriation of newly arrived
refugees back into the active war zone, and the Burmese Army-backed attacks
on refugee camps in Thailand.

It reports on the Burmese Military's depopulation policy in Karen State's
northern hills and the persecution of its shattered communities, and
portrays the refugee communities' attempts to maintain stability throughout
these traumatic times.

Filmed by the Karen themselves, the film bears witness to events throughout
the length of Karen State, and provides a powerful retrospective on what
has been the most desperate year in the Karen's long drawn-out struggle for
ethnic recognition within Burma.

The video is PAL formatted and in English.
Karen and Burmese language versions will be available in the near future.
