State of Rakhine – Australian screenings

A new documentary, The State of Rakhine, produced by Red Earth filmmaker Jason Bray, screened at a variety of locations throughout Australia in March 2016.

Not unfamiliarly dictated by a constrained budget, we could only afford to send me to Papua New Guinea to act as both cinematographer and interviewer. Our subject was […]
