		Available on VHS PAL and NTSC systems
	Caught in the Crossfire is a stirring short documentary about the 
human rights abuses of women in Burma, perpetrated by the Burmese 
military.  The footage and interviews with Burmese women and Burmese 
soldiers, were documented along the Thailand-Burma border between 1994 
and 1995.  Many of the interviews were conducted after the release of Daw 
Aung San Suu Kyi, and show that, as the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 
stated: "I have been released. That's all. Nothing else has changed."

	Told through the voices of the women themselves, this documentary 
emphasises the important experiences of women, their struggle, fear and 
courage.  These testimonies, inter-cut with sequences from their everyday 
lives in the war zones and refugee camps, clearly portray the reality of 
their situation.  These are contrated with United Nations conventions 
concerning women's rights, to further illustrat that women in Burma, 
especially in the border areas, are subject to wide-scale human rights 

	Caught in the Crossfire was designed as one in the three-part 
documentary video series, with study-guides, to be used as an education 
kit about the human rights and environmental situation in Burma.  Despite 
initial problems with the Chinese authorities, the video was premiered at 
the United Nations Women's Conference in Beijing in September 1995.  
IMAGES ASIA is a non-governmental organization which is currently in the 
process of completing parts one and three of the video series, and the 
accompanying study-guides.  Your support in purchasing this video as a 
lobbying and awareness-raising tool, will enable IMAGES ASIA to conclude 
this important work.  It will also enable other people to become 
interested and active about the human rights and environmental situation 
in Burma.
