Juliet Lamont / Australia / 2012 / 75 min.

Wai Hnin doesn’t have an ear for music. Htike can’t dance. Everybody thinks Kimmy is ugly. Cha Cha can’t escape the clutches of her despotic father. Ah Moon is a control freak … perhaps not the ideal line-up for a girl pop group. But when the Tiger Girls hit the stage, the audience goes wild. This story of Burmese girls who want to fulfil their musical dreams thanks to – and despite – the ambitions of their managers plays out against the backdrop of changes the entire country has experienced in the last two years. The authoritarian regime freed dissident Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest and has planned general elections to symbolise a certain relaxation of repression. While Suu Kyi experiences a political rebirth, the Tiger Girls capitalise on the new freedom and begin preparing their debut CD. And when the opposition politician and her party garner the most seats in by-elections, the band composes the song “Come Back Home”, calling on people in exile to return.
