“Everything starts from the question with which this Life opens: is Burma far away? Obviously not. It is ‘not far from here’, like every place on the planet. Burma in our Life is a mask to talk about us too. the far to find it surprisingly ‘next’.
There is something scandalous in the life of Aung San Suu Kyi: mildness of steel, compassion, ‘goodness’, a term that would have made Bertolt Brecht turn up his nose. Our Life is also a dialogue with Brecht, with that good soul of Sezuan that we wanted to stage a few years ago.

We didn’t do it then, and this Life has explained to us years later why. Goodness understood as Aung San Suu Kyi understands it, and as before her a theory of fighters, from Rosa Luxemburg to Simone Weil, from Gandhi to Martin Luther King, from Jean Goss to Aldo Capitini, (plus the many, countless ‘happy many’ whose name we ignore), is a scandal as a heresy, or, etymologically, a choice: we choose not to give in to violence, to the law that dominates the world, we choose to remain ‘human beings’: despite everything.

Questioning ourselves about Aung San Suu Kyi’s life has meant questioning our present: what do we mean by ‘common good’? For ‘democracy’? What do words like ‘truth and justice’ mean? Does it make sense to use these words, and how? Aren’t they worn out, sacrificed on the altar of media chatter? Or do they make sense starting from the will of a serene, paradoxical, joyful ‘self-sacrifice’? Of a silent, unexhibited heroism of everyday life? Of a daily search for ‘what hell is not’, and give it breath, space, duration? “
