Summary Evil comes in many forms. In Myanmar, it manifests in the casual racism and Islamophobia of influential, charismatic Burmese Buddhist monk Ashin Wirathu. Through interviews with journalists and community leaders who protest against Wirathu's views, activist footage of Rohingya persecutions, and through powerful storytelling, director Barbet Schroeder slowly builds his case. Perhaps most damning of all are the interviews with the man himself; couching his rhetoric in nationalist fervor.
