While the MTV series "True Life" might be the most recognizable title on director Carlos Puga's CV, when it came to crafting his sophomore feature film, he put together something quite different than you might expect. Picking up Special Jury Recognition for Ensemble Cast at SXSW last month, "Burma" is a compelling family drama and as it continues its festival circuit run, we've got a couple exclusive posters from the movie to share with you.

While the MTV series "True Life" might be the most recognizable title on director Carlos Puga's CV, when it came to crafting his sophomore feature film, he put together something quite different than you might expect. Picking up Special Jury Recognition for Ensemble Cast at SXSW last month, "Burma" is a compelling family drama and as it continues its festival circuit run, we've got a couple exclusive posters from the movie to share with you.

(Former) "Girls" star Christopher Abbott, Gaby Hoffmann and Michael McCann each get some nicely stylized character one sheets. The film tells the story of three children, Susan, Christian, and Win, who were abandoned by their father Dr. Lynn, while their terminally ill mother was on her deathbed. Years later he returns to a family reunion, and his presence stirs up the dynamic among everyone attending.

One to keep an eye on, "Burma" will next screen at the Sarasota Film Festival at the Regal Hollywood 20, Theatre 10 on Thursday, April 11th at 5:15 PM as part of the Spotlight film lineup.
