Join us for the next Ciné ONU

OV English, Free Entry

Discover two midwives, one Buddhist and one Muslim, defying strict ethnic divisions to work side by side in a makeshift clinic in western Myanmar, providing medical services to the Rohingya of Rakhine State. Over five years we witness their struggles, hopes and dreams amidst an environment of ever-increasing chaos and violence.

The film “Midwives” won a Special Jury Prize for Excellence in Vérité Filmmaking at the Sundance Film Festival 2022 edition.

Discussion with:

  • Fernand de Varennes, UN Special Rapporteur on minority issues
  • Nick Koumjian, Head of the Independent Investigative Mechanism for Myanmar 

This Ciné-ONU is organized with support from the European Union and the Secretariat of the UN Forum on Minority Issues
