germany. but 1st since myanmar's military coup earlier this month hundreds of thousands of people have been protesting for democratic freedoms for the country's artists like the indie band side effects' its freedom of expression that's at stake from an darko see remembers the days before democracy when me and mars military were the only let the band play songs approved by state censors since the army seized back power they have been fighting to keep their voice. we all were shocked. i mean. it was. the army. we did not take. but now you know just like turkish industry. that the rising. sea is a musician and record producer who lives in the end he's part of neon mars
7:46 pm
subculture scene which is taking a brave stance against the military the protesters are young angry and apparently fearless. we don't want to be seen as weak more people have to join the protests we the students the young generation have a future we have to resist so we won't have to live under a military dictatorship. the film yangon calling from 2012 gave an indication of how strongly political myanmar's youth culture is. it shows rebellious young musicians willing to take risks the punk band rebel riot and dark side effect tell of life under dictatorship. when the film was made gen tun shwed was still at the helm of the largely isolated country but then came democratic reforms and me on maher began opening up in 2012 side effect were able to tour broad for the 1st time ever their gig in a berlin club was their 1st time playing in freedom other concerts in germany as
7:47 pm
well as france and the united states following. petra try i will push. off. that's all right. gosh i wish make you show them that nobody could show it but i mean it's going gosh i just want to transform them up just like you refuse to do so. and that's exactly what myanmar's young people don't want to accept recent weeks have shown how political rebellious and creative generations eat is they very quickly established symbols of protest such as the 3 finger salute from the hunger games film series and of course they use social media to organize protests and share the results of their protest culture like the song one day by punk band rebel riot a direct challenge to the country's military. and this song got hundreds of
7:48 pm
thousands of clicks shortly after its release revolution i rapper flo grows it also takes a clear position opposing the junta. no because up until. that israel have got. our ball park junko produced the song and he's taken the precaution of relocating with his family like so many others he's taking a huge risk by speaking out but he says it's worth it. i mean to be honest i would rather i. fear. for years britney spears fans have worried for the pop star's well being now their concern is going mainstream thanks in part to the film framing britney spears the new york times produced documentary examines spears' battle to end her father's court appointed control of her life the arrangement dates back to the singer's public breakdown over a decade ago. britney was so serious and so focused this is
7:49 pm
a girl that's coming from strength the new york times documentary focuses on the legal battle britney spears has been engaged in over her father's conservatorship jamie spears has been in charge of his daughter's business affairs and other areas of her life since 2008 1st thing is britney was able to make the judgment hey i get what's going on i get that i'm not going to be able to resist this conservatorship or avoid this conservatorship that's a pretty sound judgment the 2nd thing was she said i don't want my father to be the conservator but the documentary also looks at the media landscape of the 1990 s. and early 2000 its proper razzi relentlessly followed spears his every move and perceived missteps and entertainment news outlets eagerly reported and commented on her allegations of drug use mental health struggles and unfitness as a mother ultimately led to the conservatorship.
7:50 pm
britney spears gained international fame in 1999 at the age of just 17 with the single baby one more time. it was the start of a meteoric chart topping career that earned her millions and won her a fiercely loyal fan base that has been very vocal about their support for especially in the wake of the documentary. yeah that mean it was disgusting and i think a lot of people are 'd genuine apology you know to ask a young girl of his or virgin is just not ok and not something that i would see happening in 2021. you know in the way that they they were massaging the stick to her and everything that they said about her they just always had a negative negative view point on britney no matter what she did she could never
7:51 pm
you know satisfy that i know you know i love britney and you know i've been a fan ever since i was you know little boy really means the world to me talk me out of be you know independent that's what i'm here for to be independent of her to be able to live her life on her own terms the conservatorship has now been divided between spears' his father and a trust company cheney spears says he's only looking out for his daughter's business interests but exact details of the arrangement are not publicly known britney spears's most devoted fans are calling for the conservatorship to be ended completely they're pleased that the new york times documentary has drawn increased attention to their campaign. and my colleague james jackson has more on this story james tell me a little bit about the impact of this documentary has had so far well considering that up the moment it's only viewable in the u.s. i don't think it would be an exaggeration to say it's been a global hit because it's started to change the conversation about women and media as well as highlight saying britney struggle to get the conservatorship removed of
7:52 pm
course is a father's control over how to finance a life that's something that the free britney movement has highlights how it's. it's always sort of a fringe movement for many years. well that's how it seems beginning so again with a look kind of like. maybe but actually it's a movement of people who are fighting for britney's rights to control her finances under control her annoyance so what what's new what do we learn from this documentary are there any revelations that were not out there already. so for people who've been following the story very closely i don't think there's much new in that but what this documentary has done the fact that it's by the new york times is credibility to the fights of brittany's freedom to and it's also changed the conversation and made us look back at that era especially on how women were tried with figures like justin timberlake who was of course britney's ex-boyfriend now
7:53 pm
he's issued an apology because he in the past bragged about that sex life it claims in the documentary that he sort of demonized. he's also said this industry sets up men particularly white men to succeed and women to fail reckoning with the ninety's and early 2000 what does how does brittany come across herself in the film so i think one really interesting thing in this film is this tension that comes across throughout britney's career between womanhood and go ahead now she's referenced that in quite a lot of hits and it kept it's something that keeps on going for. but in the scenes with her of a young girl she comes across the son mature and so in charge of her artistic career later on it seems like she's a fully grown woman playing a young girl how voice what really struck me was the voice actually changed quite a lot so when you see how speaking she has quite a deep louisiana quite a normal voice but then later on it sounds like she's kind of doing a bit of
7:54 pm
a baby voice and what i'm wondering is is this conservatorship stopping her development maybe making her maybe age in reverse i don't know but it's great that we're having this conversation and that britney's case is being heard in the public jackson thanks for checking that out for us. this weekend's germany kicks off celebrations marking 1700 years of jewish life in the country and the lead up we've been meeting jewish artists who live here including israeli filmmaker. her video installation at the jewish museum in berlin gives living faces and personalities to a people many germans only know from history lessons. that i was taught you know. this. is not. a religion with many faces yeah
7:55 pm
vinnie's installation message being gathered presents germany's jewish population as colorful and diverse. very often people have a very. strange image of jews here in germany sometimes some people think they're all very smart are all very rich very. great event he was born and raised new television. was part of her family's history her grandmother's family was almost wiped out in the holocaust 3 of any has lived in berlin for 15 years she's among the 20 to 30000 israelis who have moved to the german capital. there is something very fascinating about berlin because on one hand it's very. contemporary and on the other hand it's very haunted and you can you know there are really ghosts everywhere. where you have any move to germany her parents were horrified for them it was unthinkable to move to the land of the perpetrators but
7:56 pm
for her it was liberating. somehow being in berlin. opened up something for me and suddenly i realized that with this you know this trauma i can deal much better i'm able to deal with it. she dealt with that trauma in part by exploring the previously unknown and taboo subject of her family's history in her 1st film she follows the trail of a great uncle who was thought dead their great uncle never returned after being deported to both invited concentration camp through her research the filmmaker discovered he had actually started a new life in east germany with a german woman and a german name. it became much easier for me to think about these things when i realize it's not my job to forgive. it with the ghosts of the past put to rest the director's focus has now turned to her birthplace of israel in her
