A Cambodian Spring Trailer

PROGRAM NOTE
In 1993, Cambodia had its first democratic election. At the same time, the winds of development propelled by a free market economy swept the country. This documentary depicts the struggles and resistance of those forced to leave their home due to urban development. Pov and Vanny, ordinary moms, turn into civic activists to defend their rights to the land. Sovath, a monk, triggers a “Cambodian Spring” by telling the world about the resistance movement via social media despite opposition from the religious body. This documentary is unique because it doesn’t explain political corruption, injustice, and the desire for modernization through interviews. It rather focuses on the feelings and relationships among ordinary people, whose lives were dramatically changed while leading the resistance. Pov and Vanny’s friendship breaks during shooting while the camera candidly and delicately depicts their falling out. As a result, the audience sympathizes with the protagonists while denouncing the hypocrisy of politicians under the banner of progress and democratization. (CHO Hyeyoung)
