Last weekend I was given an unexpected opportunity to see the film The Lady that was showing at the new Mary D. Fisher Theater in Sedona, AZ. It is a magnificent film that came out late last year about one amazing woman, Aung San Suu Kyi, known as the "peaceful freedom fighter" - and her man, the academic writer Michael Aris - who have been holding space for democracy in Burma, despite all odds. It is a French-English co-production, directed by Luc Besson, "a man who carries utter respect for women." The same person says that "I genuinely think the purpose of this film isn’t about vanity but to show to everyone out [in the world] what happened in Burma and the courageous work and choices Aung San Suu Kyi has achieved for her country."
