GUARDIANS of PARADISE
An upcoming film by Ivan Maria Friedman
expected release : 2021
I arrived for the first time in BAGAN, the beating historical and religious heart of Myanmar, in August 2018 for a two weeks stay. At that time, I had no idea of the kind of journey that was awaiting me. I ended up coming back 4 times and spending 8 Months in the holy city, filming and photographing the traditions and the everyday life of the locals. It has been and goes on to be a life changing journey of discovery within and without. I am now working to translate that experience into a film project. "Guardians of Paradise" is meant to be a symbolic journey exploring the cycle of Life, Death and Rebirth.
