The venerable W: Catch a Cannes Review Previews
There is something not right about a Buddhist friar who quietly spreads anti-Muslim hatred speeches and instigates ethnical unrest. This controversial MONKHOCH, an authoritative character from Burma known as Venerable Wirathu, is the theme of the mighty third and last episode of Barbet Schroeder's 1974 Axis of Evil with General Idi Amin Dada:
During Trump's time (Wirathu is a fan), Farage and Le Pen she also sheds a light on the mechanics of nationalist oratory. This should be enough to establish The Venerable W in adult, doc-friendly stores despite its potential market recess, and it seems to be ready for VOD distributors.
Wrapped in safrano dresses, his face seldom reveals emotions, Wirathu is partially presented by excerpts from an audio clip that Gerhard Schroeder recorded with him in the Mandalay convent he runs. The' venerable' friar speaks frankly about what he sees as the Islamic menace of buddhistic cleanness by quietly spreading racist insults about their ability to breed, the violence of'our women', the animal character and the build-up of riches that bear frightening echos of Nazi anti-Semitic slander.
Ichathu's ascent from darkness to the rapist is then recorded and mixed his own report with testimonies from a mixture of respondents - including two Myanmar buddhistic master Buddhists who have been in jail like'W', but for far more honorable purposes. Ichathu's nine-year campaign to incite racial hate came after a flood of unrest in his home town of Kyaukse and elsewhere that resulted in lynching and burns of Moslem mausoleums, stores and homes.
In the second half the atmosphere of the movie gets dimmer when Wirathu is back on the election path with even more vitamin A after its publication in 2012. Messages and cell phones capture some of the bogroms started against Burma's haunted Muslim minorities Rohingya, mostly in Rakhine state: a Buddhist friar punching a music movie with a make-believe society to a mush is hard to wipe out.
Meanwhile we have found out what the friar really is. He is a classical extreme political man who fosters tension through the cruellest oratory ( (including a revival on disc of the Raping of a Buddhaist Ma Ba Tha raped woman under the auspices of his Nazi movement) and then visits the affected areas to "restore order" and ensure securit.
The Venerable W, fired on the foot under the nose of a oppressive regimes, is a subtle, rousing film about the ravages of ethnical clean-up.
