    Synopsis

    "Listen" is a documentary portrait of revolutionary artist Chaw Ei Then. Exiled from her homeland of Myanmar, she uses visually striking and emotionally unsettling performance art and artwork as a means of dissent, both to express her political views and to give voice to her victimized experience and inner struggles.
