Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw invites you to a film screening by Barbet Schroeder.
In Myanmar, the venerable Wirathu is a highly respected and influential Buddhist monk. Meeting him amounts to traveling to the heart of everyday racism and observing how Islamophobia and hate speech lead to violence and destruction. Yet this is a country in which 90% of the population has adopted Buddhism as a faith: a religion based on a peaceful, tolerant and non-violent way of life.
