A world premiere screening as part of Open City Documentary Festival

As part of Open City Documentary Festival, we host the world premiere of We Were Kings, a rediscovery of Burma’s lost royal family. Deposed and exiled by Britain, they are now emerging from the shadows in a country experiencing seismic change. This intriguing documentary won the Whicker’s World Foundation inaugural Funding Award for historian and first time director, Alex Bescoby.

Presented by Open City Documentary Festival, an annual event (5 – 10 September 2017) that creates an open space in London to nurture and champion the art of creative documentary and non-fiction filmmakers, providing a platform for emerging talent as well as established masters working within the documentary form.
