The Venerable W.

The renowned documentary filmmaker Barbet Schoeder, who in the past has created portraits of Idi Amin and the legal defender of Nazi butcher Klaus Barbie, has created a new work with more frightening insights into fascism and bigotry. The Venerable W. refers to Wirathu, a violently Islamophobic Burmese Buddhist monk who's made it his mission to incite persecution of Myanmar's miniscule Muslim population (known as the Rohingya). Upsetting but informative viewing, no doubt. At the Friday screening, you can hear from CAIR-Washington State Executive Director Masih Fouladi, Emmanuel N. Muvunyi of the Rwandan Community State of Washington, and Professor Mary Callahan about the Rohingya and ethnic cleansing.
