On Sunday, May 29th this free bilingual (English/Korean) screening of This Prison Where I Live will be presented by the Asia Pacific Youth Network’s Burma Youth Campaign Team and Amnesty International Korea at Jogye Temple in order to promote the 3 Freedoms of expression, association and assembly in Burma, a country where over 2,000 political prisoners remain behind bars.

This Prison Where I Live is a feature length documentary from Rex Bloomstein about two comedians. Maung Thura, better known as Zarganar, is Burma’s greatest living comic. Relentlessly victimized by the Burmese military junta, he is now in prison. Michael Mittermeier, in stark contrast, is free to practice his art of humor and provocation as one of Germany’s leading stand up comedians. The screening will be followed by a Burmese cultural performance and a question and answer session with a Burmese human rights activist living in Korea.

Time: 2:30pm – 5:00pm

Place: Jogye Traditional Cultural Theater, Jogye Temple, Jongno
