The human rights abuses of the Myanmar republic are brought to horrifying life in this tale of hardship and perseverance in the face of impossible conditions.

The peaceful jungles of Burma are ripped apart as the People Power Uprising of 1988 incites the brutal military rulers of Myanmar to crush a burgeoning revolution. Among millions of displaced natives are Thazama, Moonpi and Kim, members of the Zomi tribe, forced to flee slavery and torture, who soon learn that everywhere they turn, they are trapped between worlds and hostages in their own country.

With captivating imagery and heart-wrenching clarity, Burmese Moons tells a tragic story of oppressive human rights violations in what was formerly the longest-running military dictatorship in the world -- and illustrates the brutal toll exacted upon the men, women and children of the region.

About the Author

Sophie Ansel was born in Brittany and has worked in Taiwan, the United States, Australia, Malaysia, and Thailand. In 2005 and 2006 she first went to Burma, where five years of investigation led her to collect the testimonies of hundreds of Burmese of all ethnicities and led to her first work about the subject, the film Dans l'ombre de ton sourire (2007). She has also written the testimony of Navy Soth called Les Larmes Interdites (Forbidden Tears), and the biography of Habib, a stateless young Burmese called Nous les innommables-un tabou birman.

Sam Garcia was born in 1978 in Spain. After studying design, he became a graphic designer and decided to start comic strip after reading I Never Liked You, by Chester Brown. He published several stories between 2002 and 2005 in the magazine Norma Editorial and various publishers. In 2012, he drew Burmese Moons with Sophie Ansel.
