Documentary Film: “Guns, Briefcases and Inequality: The Neglected War in Kachin State”

By Burma Partnership  •  September 21, 2013

A Burma Partnership Production
Written and Directed by Daniel Quinlan

While President Thein Sein is being applauded internationally for his efforts to build peace in Burma, this new documentary film by Burma Partnership questions whether the government’s current process will really lead to sustainable peace and national reconciliation.

“Guns, Briefcases and Inequality: The Neglected War in Kachin State” highlights how development projects and natural resource management are exacerbating armed conflict and human rights violations in ethnic areas, without adequate means to justice for the people. The film demonstrates the need for the government of Burma to engage in meaningful political dialogue with all ethnic nationalities on equal terms to address the underlying causes of armed conflict: self-determination, the lack of ethnic rights, and inequality.
