Aung San Suu Kyi is a central figure in Burma's democracy movement. Held under house arrest for 15 years, she was freed in 2010 and elected to Burma’s parliament earlier this year. She also was able to finally accept her Nobel Peace Prize this year– 21 years after it was awarded. The Lady reconstructs the story of Burma's national heroine. (Winner: Cinema for Peace Awards - International Human Rights Award.)
