The screening of ‘This Prison Where I Live’ is in conjunction with Rex Entertainment at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on Thursday, 15th September. Director Rex Bloomstein will take part in a Q&A session following the screening.

The FCO has helped to organise screenings of ‘This Prison Where Live’ all over the world and we are now pleased to give our Facebook members the chance to see it here.

‘This Prison Where I Live’ tells the story of the political prisoner Zarganar, a fierce critic of the regime and Burma’s most popular comedian. Containing secret footage of Zarganar filmed in 2007, it is an insight into the experiences of an extraordinary man and the journey made by Bloomstein and German comedian Michael Mittermeier in their attempt to share his story with the world.

This film simultaneously explores the scale of oppression in Burma and the resilience of those who struggle against it. The comparison between two comedians from two different countries reveals the importance of democracy and freedom of speech.

“The movie is an introduction to a remarkable man who needs the support of the world against his vindictive oppressors” – The Observer

Thank you for your continuing support. We look forward to seeing you at the screening.


The screening will take place on 15th September. Refreshments will be served from 6.00pm before an introduction to the film at 6.30pm. Please arrive at the main reception by 6:15 to be escorted to the screening.
