About This Project

THE VENERABLE W [2017, FRANCE, SWITZERLAND]

Director: Barbet Schroeder

TUES 7/2 AND SAT 7/6

A NYTimes Critics Pick, the third in his trilogy of Evil, Barbet Schroeder has made yet another compelling documentary that demands to be seen. The Venerable W. is a powerful portrait about the Burmese Buddhist monk, Ashin Wirathu, and his anti-Muslim fanaticism, leading his followers to harass, beat and even kill Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. As the documentary moves through Myanmar’s history, we see Rohingya persecution isn’t the audience that evil isn’t new, the face just keeps changing.
