    Bordered by Thailand, China, Bangladesh and India, Burma, or Myanmar is the second-largest country in Southeast Asia and one of the world's biggest enigmas. Lieberman compiled 3 years of surreptitiously filmed images and interviews. The results are a look at Buddhist nation whose citizens have been under the yoke of brutal regimes for most of its modern history. A fascinating, heart-breaking look at another world.
