A River Changes Course

.

Twice a year in Cambodia, the Tonle Sap River changes course, while life for the Cambodian people continue to flow in a perpetual cycle of death and rebirth and of creation and destruction. The director spent two years in her native homeland following three young Cambodians as they struggled to overcome the crushing effects of deforestation, overfishing, and overwhelming debt. A breathtaking and unprecedented journey from the remote, mountainous jungles and floating cities of the Cambodian countryside to the bustling garment factories of modern Phnom Penh, it traces a devastating and beautiful story of an ancient culture ravaged by globalization.

Running Time: 83 min.
Subject(s): Ecology, Environment, Economy, Globalization, Human Rights, Immigration and Migration, Labor, Society, Youth
Language(s): Khmer
Subtitles: English
Director(s):
