Dear John Miles,
I too am a filmmaker and have likewise just returned from 5 weeks
videotaping in Burma and refugee camps around Mae Sot. We must have missed
you by moments! We actually left Guest House #2 on the over-night bus to
Bkk and home on the eve of the attack, and had been filming in Quekaloke
that very day. My project is not a news doc but rather a feature-length
piece that will take time to put together. We would be very interested in
viewing any material which you may be willing to share, outtakes or
whatever else may be available, (Of course we would expect to compensate
you for anything we would use.) Sounds like you got acrss the border, which
we did not. We hope you are able to get your piece on Channel 4. The
world needs to know what's happening over there. Good luck! Hope to hear
All the best,
The Downtown Movie Co.
