The Venerable W. Trailer (2017)
Trailer for the documentary The Venerable W., which screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
In 1974, Iranian-born Swiss-French director Barbet Schroeder gained unprecedented access to the brutal Ugandan despot in order to film General Idi Amin Dada: A Self-Portrait. Three decades later, he turned his documentary eye to controversial lawyer Jacques Vergès for Terror’s Advocate (MIFF 2007). Now he rounds out the trilogy with an immersive voyage to Myanmar, where he meets a firebrand Buddhist monk, The Venerable Wirathu.
