The long lasting, continuous civil war in Myanmar has left its traces and injuries on the human body and soul, as well as on society. Since 2007, almost 800 prosthetic legs have been produced in a workshop run by disabled veterans. Injured ex-soldiers of the Burmese Army and ex-liberation fighters work together to help amputees. The film does not only portray the work of the disabled craftsmen, which gives them hope and strength to deal with their situation, it tells the story of solidarity in a space where ethnic boundaries and former rivalries are left behind and appear senseless - like the war itself. The director, Khon Soe Moe Aung, is a human rights activist and young filmmaker, who was introduced to filmmaking during a Yangon Film School course. MY LEG is his first documentary film. Currently, he is working on a feature-length documentary.

In cooperation with Goethe Institut Myanmar and SEZ – Stiftung Entwicklungs-Zusammenarbeit Baden-Württemberg
