    by Art Insect


    A Vertovian film using video footage and still photographs of the city of Mandalay (Burma) and the world-famous Moustache Brothers featuring Par Par Lay.

    Par Par Lay & The Moustache Brothers are a troupe of comedians, dancers, and musicians from Mandalay who perform traditional Burmese vaudeville-style theatre. They have been known for many years as Burma's outspoken political dissidents under the oppressive military regime. Having been banned from performing publicly in front of Burmese audiences, they perform every night for a handful of tourists in their living room in Mandalay.
