Sat. Jan. 26. Documentary Film - Odd Fellows Hall 7:30 PM

Documentary Film: Amae, Thamee, Ama (Mother, Daughter, Sister)

Description

Amae, Thamee, Ama (Mother, Daughter, Sister) exposes the Burmese military’s practice of using rape as a weapon of war and gives voice to Kachin and Rohingya women activists calling for justice for these crimes.

The film revolves around the stories of four women: Shamima, a volunteer counselor working with survivors of military rape in the Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, Dil Kayas, a teenage survivor and San Lung and Lu Ra, the sister and mother of two Kachin school teachers brutally raped and killed in 2015, allegedly by the Burmese military.

Powerful testimonies from survivors, witnesses and activists explore the far-reaching impact of sexual violence upon women and communities, woven with stories of courageous women calling for justice and a unified stand for an end to impunity.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Director Jeanne Hallacy and a human rights defender from Burma or an academic with expertise in SE Asia, Burma, or human rights.
