The Road to Mandalay
Location: Bartos Screening Room
With Midi Z in person
Dir. Midi Z. 2016, 108 mins. Digital projection. In Burmese with English subtitles.
Described in Variety as “a low-key, high-impact love story about two illegal immigrants with very different ideas about making money and starting a new life in Bangkok,” The Road to Mandalay follows two strangers who are thrown together as they flee conflict and poverty and try to find work. With its assured visual style and compelling and eerie soundtrack, The Road to Mandalay is Midi Z.’s most accomplished fiction film to date.
