Le vénérable W.

A partnership with Europa Cinemas.
Starring Kyaw Zayar Htun, U. Zanitar & Ashin Wirathu
Directed by Barbet Schroeder

In Burma, the Venerable Wirathu is a highly respected and influential Buddhist monk. Meeting him amounts to traveling to the heart of everyday racism and observing how Islamophobia and hate speech lead to violence and destruction. Yet this is a country in which 90% of the population has adopted Buddhism as a faith: a religion based on a peaceful, tolerant and non-violent way of life.
