Yangon Calling  


Yangon Calling is a documentary movie about the Burmese Punk Rock underground, directed by Berlin based filmmakers Alexander Dluzak and Carsten Piefke.

For young Burmese, punk provides a way to stand up against the pressures they have to face in their day-to-day lives. In the 90's, sailors brought the first punk rock cassettes into the isolated country. Since then a scene with several hundred followers has emerged in Yangon.

Yangon Calling

Over the course of six weeks, the filmmakers accompanied a group of notable punks to their homes, met their friends and families, went along with them to work in a tailor shop and tattoo studio, checked out their rehearsal rooms and hung at secret concerts. They spoke with punks who had sat in jail and fought their frustrations with heroin. Yangon Calling is a film about life, about personal tragedy and the struggle for freedom.
