This is a film about two comedians. Maung Thura, better known as Zarganar, is Burma’s greatest living comic. Relentlessly victimised by the Burmese military junta, he is now in prison. Michael Mittermeier, in stark contrast, is free to practise his art of humour and provocation as one of Germany’s leading stand up comedians.

Lecture Theatre 93, Level 3, RMIT Building 56, Queensberry St, Carlton. $10.

Tickets can be purchased on the door or online at OAB.
