At home in Burma, however, Lu Min won high praise from one famous local movie director, who said the film-maker deserved recognition for daring to invest in “such a grandiose project” without expecting to make a profit from it.

 

“He wanted to prove not only to the regional market but also mainly to our sleepy and complacent movie industry that we can do it,” the movie director said.

 

Lu Min, though, remains optimistic about the international prospects for his film, and he’s now involved in negotiations for distribution in the US and Australia.

Kyaw Win

 

For young Burmese eager to follow international affairs and ideas, the writings of Kyaw Win offer a clear window on the world.

 

Kyaw WinKyaw Win, editor of a number of magazines and journals, seeks to introduce his readers to the ideas of such leading Western scholars and journalists as Samuel Huntington, Francis Fukuyama, Alvin Toffler, Peter Drucker, Edward De Bono, Fareed Zakaria—the list is virtually endless.

 

His wide area of concern covers politics, international affairs, education and youth topics, management, and developments in science and technology.

 

Writing in an atmosphere of distrust of much Western literature and scholarship, Kyaw Win appeals for a critical but open approach to controversial ideas.

 

“First of all, we need to know what the ideas are,” he says in the preface to his book The Clash of Civilizations and The Great Disruption.
