Burma’s Lost Royals

Today marks 135th Anniversary of the Abdication of Abdication of King Thibaw Min of Burma, on this day in 1885, when the the British Army invaded Burma and deposed its King, marking the end of over a thousand years of the Burmese monarchy. The royal family was exiled, and the country was plunged into war and the longest military dictatorship of modern times. But after a century of silence they are back, and they’re on a journey to bring the family – past and present – back together. Filmed through three years of seismic change in Burma, ‘Burma’s Lost Royals’ is the story of a family and a country emerging from the darkness.
