Harp of Burma

Film - Feature | July 25 | 7-8:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


A fatalistic elegy for the war dead, Harp of Burma links beauty with a sense of loss, and loss with salvation. Burma at the close of World War II is a no-man’s-land, a quiet emptiness where there used to be life. But the Himalayas still move villagers to dream, and captured Japanese soldiers to sing in sweet harmony; Burma is still “Buddha’s country.”
