A Cambodian Spring

How much would you sacrifice to fight for what you believe in?

A Cambodian Spring is an intimate and unique portrait of three people caught up in the chaotic and often violent development that is shaping modern day Cambodia. Shot over 6 years, the film charts the growing wave of land rights protests that led to the ‘Cambodian spring’ and the tragic events that followed. This film is about the complexities and costs both political and personal, of fighting for what you believe in.
