Whilst many movie makers bemoan state censure as an art form, it is not the only thing hindering the development of a Burmese Hollywood. Wyne is an award-winning filmmaker known for his intimate dramas; the works are loved by both young viewers and the censors.
Wyne filed a summary of his proposed fiction movie "Letter to the President" with the censorate. Then her mind sends a message to the governor and tries to win the help of various men to bring it to him. So far, the censors have denied permission for the movie.
Censored by the Ministry of Information's Motion Picture Development Branch (MPDB), the agency, formally known as the Motion Picture Classification board, consists of 15 members from various organizations such as the Myanmar Motion Picture Organization (MMPO), the Myanmar Music Association, the Ministry of Re Affairs and Culture, the Public Prosecutor's Office and the Ministry of the Interior under the control of the armed forces.
Prior to 2011, the rules governing the review of the contents of films included ten basic beliefs that ranged from political, religious and ethnic benevolence to "good" people. Until the end of 2011, the entire sector was subject to aggressive control by the country's movie censors when four issues - promoting good morale, emphasising the fight against criminality, excluding obscenity and banning the depiction of children abused - were lifted.
Burma's Wyne maintains that moviemakers who have worked under the country's rigorous grading practice for a long time cannot help but keep censoring themselves while making movies; these rules, he says, have "killed" their creativitv. "Audiences will be punished if we make poor movies. In his 30-minute documentary "Ban That Scene", which shows censors editing shots of bribery, impoverishment and urban warfare, Wyne criticised the long-established system of cinema-censoring.
"when they see this picture, they' ll think[Burma] has a beggar. There may be beggars but not in this film," said a man who acted as such a member of the executive committee in the comedy. Whilst it would be simple to shift the guilt of censure entirely onto the Burma regime that governed Burma for almost half a hundred years, the story of censure in Burma's cinemas actually goes back to Burma's days of colonialism.
A number of movies about grievances and corruption were prohibited by the UK government, but Burma's film scene remained politically sensitive after the Second World War and the country's 1948 Independence from the UK Emire. However, after the 1962 putsch, when the nation was suffering under Gen Ne Win's so-called "Burmese path to socialism", it took a harsh turn.
" Since then, the whole movie business was compelled to make pictures that not only eclipsed the real world, but also commended the state. One brochure published in 1974 for the Burmese Academy Awards (1972-73) contained a listing of graded sequences from two years of cinematography.
"Staged by Maung Tin Oo, Thingyan Moe" is about two generation of Mandalay romances revolving around the city's waters-fest - Thingyan in Burmese. However, the issue was not the story or the film' s content. By Burmese standards, the term "I" is gender-specific - men say Kiebaw and woman say it.
Burma's rules on censure are today basing on those introduced after the 1988 pro-democracy movements when the army regime published rules and rules on censure to ensure that movies "do no damage to the state' s reputation. "Through the Ministry of Information, the administration tried to use the movie as one of the instruments to spread its own ideology and prevent the spread of conflicting ones.
Every fiction must be resubmitted to the Executive Committee for approval and a full copy of the movie must be resubmitted before it reaches the box offices, but direct-to-DVD films do not need to be submit. Phone-Maw, a member of the Myanmar Motion Picture Organization (MMPO) movie censure agency and the Myanmar Motion Picture Organization secretaire, said that all members of the executive committee must review every movie and every movie in the interest of the people.
Said Burma's public is still not prepared to buy directly from the filmmaker, as some moviemakers still create movies that are not suitable for watching with their own families or are religiousally and culturally unsuited. You were dominated by anxiety, and that was the greatest problem," he said, pointing out that some former members of the executive committee were largely motivated by the wish to neutralise contents that could violate the countrys humanity without realising what sequences were necessary for the history of a movie.
It also declared the fight for a more free cinema in Burma, where religions and traditions are powerful enough to lightly censure a work. "Movies are a kind of people. However, if this civilization is encircled by cultural values such as faith, traditions and ethnical support, it can be very hard for movie makers to get out of the shadows of censorship," he said.
However, Myint Thein Pe is not confident about the effects of the relaxation of some of the rules on the use of censure since 2011. "I have not seen any significant improvements in the creativity since the level of censure has dropped. However, the sector continues to turn and does what is trendy," he said. Watchers from the sector point out that the country's present day markets are filled with pirate copied DVD's from Korea, Thailand, China and America and that many regional film makers just adopt tales from overseas movies instead of creating inventive music.
In spite of the sometimes weird regulations such as the ban on flare pants - the time from the 1950' to the 1970' is still regarded by many as the gold era of the sector, in which regional film makers produce an annual output of almost 100 originals on averages. Today the state produces less than twenty movies a year and publishes between 800 and 1,000 direct-to-video DVD discs.
The prizewinning filmmaker Kyi Soe Tun said that the censor should not bear all the guilt for the industry's demise. "I' m not too fond of accusing the censor. He quoted the documentary "Thingyan Moe" - the one that saw his Mandalay accent graded. The 1985 strictly censured documentary later became an icon of Burma's annual television and television festivals, whose importance during Burma's largest festivals probably resembles the place that movies like "It's a wonderfull life" occupy during the US Christmas time.
"He said, "If you can't get a good screenplay, you can't get a good movie. Wathann Filmfestival (WFF), co-founder of Burma's first ever independant filmfestival, Thu Thu Shein said the censor should be re-formed to reduce the adverse impact on filmmakers' creative capacity.
She said it could also discourage minors from viewing violence and sexuality. "It should enable film makers to make their own works of arts, and their films can be managed via the evaluation system," she said. However, the members of the Committee on Human Rights do not agree with the concept of an evaluation system. MPDB of the Ministry of Information and Secretaire of the Censor said that the public was not ready enough for an evaluation system.
In April, Wyne resubmitted his movie "Letter to the President" to the censors in the hope that the new administration would have no objections. There are other factors why Htoo Aing Zaw Oo has failed to make higher narrative and art quality feature length productions - most of them are market-oriented and concentrate only on showing celebrity celebrities rather than creating true story.
Also, he said, producers have a tendency not to spend much effort on making a movie and instead concentrate on making as many as possible available. According to Myat Noe, Burma's movie critics, the country's movie business is also unwilling to accept younger-generation filmmakers.
"Renowned comedians who have a great impact on decision-making and financial backers who make movies don't want to welcome a new breed of young movie makers trained at the movie school," he said. Manufacturers just don't believe them, he added, pointing out that these up-and-coming movie makers often have an understanding of contemporary and global business tendencies and may be able to make different kinds of movies.
"As far as I know, nobody hires them to make movies," Myat Noe said. Said the movie business needed insurgents - a new breed of filmmaker with innovative thinking and concept - to transform the filmmaking world.
