Burma: Grace Under Pressure

Burma: Grace Under Pressure Zeldman logged this a couple days ago, but I just got to it today. Geofrrey Hiller's documentary site based on his travel in Burma. I can't say enough good things about it. A moving presentation on a beleaguered country, beautifully photgraphed and sequenced. The world is forgetting what was done to Burma. This should be a reminder.

It's slow, in part deliberately; it uses Flash (well), and it's got big images and sound…but it's worth it.

Nice photographs, worthy subject, but, again, the added graphics (e.g., red flashing screen with "protesting for democracy") just look forced and tacky when I have to watch them. And lord is it sl-o-o-w, and I'm on DSL.

There -- a welter of petty complaints. Like I said, though, good photography.

Ironically, this made me desperate to get back to Laos.

Wow this was on Zeldman too?

I found it on DSLreports, of all places, who said they found it from memepool. It must be good. I'll have to read it sometime.
