The Graham Spry fund for Public Broadcasting and the Communication department at the Université de Montréal invite you to the annual commemorative Spry conference, which will take place on the 19th of November 2009. This conference will start with a screening of the film,Burma VJ: Reporting from a Closed Country (English version with English subtitles). Winner of several prizes, Burma VJ is a documentary that traces the events of the 2007 Saffron Revolution in Burma based on the accounts of citizens who risk their lives every day to film and to share their images with other Burmese citizens and with the rest of the world. Through the work of these citizen journalists, the world has been able to witness the harrowing circumstances with which the Burmese population has to cope.
