On Friday, Aung San Suu Kyi will have the unique opportunity to select the actors to play her father and mother in a film about their lives.

A list of finalists has been selected for the film about the independence hero of Burma.

“Daw Aung San Su Kyi will meet with the short-listed nominees, then she will discuss her ideas with the other board members before we announce the final selections,” a member of the selection group told the Myanmar Times, in an article published on Monday. Filming is scheduled to begin in early 2013.

The Bogyoke Aung San Film Executive Board has also called for financial backers to help fund the film. As of last week, it had received nearly US$ 4,500.
