|Last week, our producer Karen Katz and Tu Wah – one of the Karen refugees whose story is followed by the film – were interviewed by the BBC World Service. You can listen to the feature online here.
Anyone who’s seen the film already might have noticed that one of its opening shots is of Thaw Htoo (Tu Wah’s father and a Karen refugee in Mae La camp) tuning his radio into the BBC World Service in Burmese… so it seemed especially appropriate for them to do a feature on the film, although we’re not sure if it will ever be broadcast on the Burmese service!
We’re not sure which countries the clip was broadcast to, but this morning we received a message from someone in Boston, USA who’d heard it and wanted to know more about the film. If anyone else has heard it outside the UK, please let us know!
