The Road to Mandalay

Taiwan, France, Germany, Myanmar 2016 | 108 minutes | Burmese | Hebrew, English subtitles

For illegal immigrants, the route from Myanmar to Thailand is filled with adversity, from crossing the Mekong as stowaways on cargo ships, to hostile interrogations at border crossings. Lianqing, a delicate young Burmese woman, survives the journey to Bangkok only to discover that the real challenges lay ahead. With no legal documents, a place to stay, or steady employment, she puts her fate in the hands of friends and a gentle fellow migrant. But in time, Lianqing realizes that while necessary, her reliance on others is no less dangerous. Through Z’s powerful film, unforgettable scenes are subtly linked in a narrative leading to the moment of descent.
