The insane rantings of a Buddhist monk who’s adept at riling up the crowds. A documentary that uses its source material to examine the roots of evil. In his latest work, the Swiss director, sworn enemy of hatemongering authority figures, points his camera at a prominent Burmese monk: a radical preacher who advocates violence toward the Muslim minority of Myanmar, a country rarely in the news in the West.
