The Venerable W.

The Venerable W.

A Feature film by Barbet Schroeder

Produced by Les Films du Losange

Release in France : 07/06/2017


    In Burma, the “Venerable Wirathu” is a highly respected and influential Buddhist monk. Meeting him amounts to traveling to the heart of everyday racism and observing how Islamophobia and hate speech lead to violence and destruction. Yet this is a country in which 90% of the population has adopted Buddhism as a faith: a religion based on a peaceful, tolerant and non-violent way of life.
