A documentary about Myanmar monk at the Cannes Film Festival
The renowned Cannes Filmfestival is releasing a feature length Ashin Wirathu movie this weekend. Some in Myanmar, however, are wondering whether the interest of the press has brought him notoriety. Erathu is known for his anti-Muslim view. Barbet Schroeder's movie "The Venerable W" will be released in a feature show at the Stage.
Wirathu was convicted of instigating acts of aggression and imprisoned for 25 years in 2003. In the same year, Myanmar witnessed the first of several acts of brutality in its democratic transformation. As the TIME-magazin Wirathu appeared on the frontpage in 2013, the whole wide globe began to comprehend Wirathu's problem.
It also has a large following in the corporate world, with its inflammable sentries. The fact that he did not meet with much opposition in Myanmar, however, calls into doubt some of his ties. Thirha Saw is Principal of the Myanmar Journalism Institute. The Myanmar majorstream press are now cautious about how much attention they give him.
He asks reporters not to talk about the insulting things Wirathu said and to concentrate on more varied topics. Myanmar has many important topics that are more important than him. "Wirathu had blended triumph with his military power. Last March, Wirathu was excluded from the sermon for a year.
There must be a mixture of control and caution in the coverage of Wirathu, according to UK-based Frontier Myanmar daily Oliver Sloven. I think his group and the folks behind him have the ability to cause huge problems, so I think it's important to report on him and what they do," says slowly.
" Mr Smith is Managing Director of the non-governmental organisation Fortify Rights. He' s looking for more information about Wirathu. Shouldn't the press be reporting less about Controversies?
