The Lady is an extraordinary story of love. It is the story of a man, Michael Aris, and most of all the story of a remarkable woman, Aung San Suu Kyi, who sacrifices her personal happiness for that of her people. Nothing, however, can shake the infinite love that unites these two people, not even separation, absence, isolation, and the inhumanity of a political junta that is still in place in Burma.
The Lady is also the story of a woman who has become one of the contemporary symbols of the struggle for democracy.

On Monday, April 2nd, the French Embassy in Sweden, in cooperation with Franska Filmfestivalen (http://www.franskafilmfestivalen.com/) and Scanbox, organized a preview of Luc Besson's last movie, "The Lady", at the movie theatre Sture in Stockholm. "The Lady" is based on the life of Aung San Suu Kyi (Nobel Price for Peace 1991) and her life-long fight for democracy in Burma. As the event took place the day after the elections in Burma, the movie was preceeded by a debate on the current situation in the country. The panelists were Lian H Sakhong (Director of the Burma Center for Ethnic Studies, http://burmaethnicstudies.net/about.html), Lise Bergh (General Secretary for Amnesty International Sweden, http://www.amnesty.se/) and Karin Valtersson (Resp. for Information and Communication, Swedish Comitee for Burma (http://www.burmakommitten.org)), and the mediator was David Isaksson from Global Reporting (http://www.globalreporting.net/). After the debate, the Swedish EU Minister Birgitta Ohlsson made a key-note speech about the situation in Burma and paid a tribute to Aung San Suu Kyi.
