Gingerly, film-maker tests limits of freedom in Myanmar

 YANGON (Reuters) – Myanmar movie director Zay Par is doing what would have been unthinkable two years ago – putting the finishing touches to a film that harks back to a 1988 student uprising brutally put down by military rulers.

 Hunched in front of a computer in a cramped room in Yangon, Zay Par says he is testing the boundaries of newfound artistic freedom that has blossomed since the junta handed power to a hand-picked civilian government in 2011 – but very carefully.

 “We will show our edit to the censorship board and they will decide whether to allow it or not,” the 35-year-old said.
