The charity event in commemoration of the 105th Birthday of Bogyoke Aung San in conjunction with Myanmar Children’s Day was celebrated by the production of Golden Princess film at Thamada Cinema in Yangon on Thursday. At the event, the film audience from the first-day show of the Golden Princess film was provided with charity foods that included boiled peas and naans, a favorite food of Bogyoke Aung San. The producers of the film, the actors, actresses and the responsible people from Myanmar Motion Picture Organization made the charity works at Myin Thar Myo Oo Monastic Education School and Child Development Centre and the students from the center were treated with charity foods inclusive of boiled peas and naans. The film production makes a free screening for the students to commemorate the Myanmar Children’s Day and the 105th Birthday of Bogyoke Aung San on the first day of the film.

The first day screening of the Golden Princess film was coincided with the 105th Birthday of Bogyoke Aung San and the Myanmar Children’s Day which falls on the 13th February. Ko Myo (Myanmarsar), an organizer of the charity event said about the charity works provided by the film production.

Ko Myo (Myanmarsar), Chief Content Officer, Channel K “The Golden Princess film was permitted to be screened coincidentally on the Birthday of Bogyoke Aung San and it is also Myanmar Children’s Day. We usually create the charity works related with art. So, we offered the meals to the monks and the students from Myin Thar Myo Oo Monastic Education School and Child Development Centre were treated in commemoration of Bogyoke Birthday in the morning. And we make a free screening of 12:30 pm show time for the students at Thamada Cinema. We also treated boiled peas and naans to the audience from the first show for today’s screening. Most students from this monastic school have never been to a cinema. As the feature of a country’s feature, children must keep developing both physically and mentally. To develop the mentally and intelligence, only the school education is not well enough and they must know about the general knowledge from the outside world. The film can create such kind of knowledge. That’s why we planned to make a free screening for the students and to make them happy on Children Day.”

Over 200 students and teachers have participated in the free screening event celebrating at Thamada Cinema. And Ko Myo (Myanmarsar) also told MI Radio that the Golden Princess film production also treated the charity foods to the audience at Icon Cinema in Toungoo as a commemorative event for Bogyoke Aung San’s birthday.

The actress May Thizar Oo also said her participation in today charity works and Golden Princess film which she stared as a character.

Daw May Thizar Oo, Actress “For me, it won’t be easy to plan a free film screening for over 200 children like this. But the production can create such kind of charity works. I am really thankful them because we can treat the children and make them watch the film because of the production. This event is really memorable for me.”

U Phoe Tar, Supporting Actor “As much as I know, U Kyaw Thu also did a free film screening for his film 1014. So, this film will be the second film for free screening. Of course, this kind of free film screening costs a lot and also is a bit bothersome for the production. But we have received much more love and kindness from the children. I wish the more screening like this for the children.”
