“Born Warriors and Born Warriors Redux offer a rare, first- hand look at Lethwei, a Burmese bare-knuckle martial art that was hidden from the world for decades by a brutal military regime. Featuring unprecedented access to the people who shaped and survived the sport during its darkest hour, this intimate series of documentaries and supplemental pieces provides an unparalleled look at this fascinating sport. This singular documentary is unlikely to be equaled in its depth and understanding of its subject matter.”
