Meanwhile, folks who are attending moe.down will have an opportunity to attend a special screening of the film Burma VJ. The documentary “tells the story of the Saffron Revolution in Burma, the monks who marched in peaceful protest against the military dictatorship, and the underground video journalists who got their story out and told to the world.” A number of the monks along with some Burmese students will attend a screening on Saturday morning at 10AM in the lodge.
