George Soros To Fund Gen Aung San Movie
George Soros who vigorously supported oversea Myanmar political activists for two decades, is said to fund the production of much anticipated film “General Aung San”, who was a national leader and independence hero.
The democracy icon and the Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is the daughter of General Aung San.
The Hungary-born American philanthropist plan to travel to Myanmar on December 23rd, 2011. The Open Society Institute (OSI) is widely known to have dedicated to the democracy movement in Myanmar through Burma Project. He reportedly made contact to a well-known political activist and famous comedian Zaganar about the sponsorship of the movie production.
His arrival to Myanmar and funding of the movie may attract attention of the world and could imply that changes are actually going on in this Southeast Asian nation. His intention of the visit and itinerary is still unknown.
