Burma’s non-violent revolution has seen thousands detained for their political activities. There are currently more than 2,100 political prisoners in Burma’s notorious jails. From the refugee camps and safe houses on the Thai-Burma border to those who have been resettled to third countries around the world, ‘The Prison Without Bars’ (an ongoing long term documentary project) follows the lives of Burma’s former political prisoners as they continue in the struggle to bring democracy to Burma as well as their own personal fight for freedom.

As a sideline the project will also involve video and multimedia to enable former political prisoners to help tell their stories. A clip from an interview with Tun Lin Kyaw, a former bodyguard of Aung San Suu Kyi can be viewed here
