A Cambodian Spring charts the chaotic and violent wave of change that is shaping modern-day Cambodia. We follow three activists over the course of six years as they speak out against the injustices taking place all around them in the name of progress, development, and democracy.
It took Irish filmmaker Chris Kelly six years to complete this unwavering survey of the Cambodian conflict, achieving unexpected universality with his focus on the power of activism in the face of corruption. A raw documentary on the uprising of a nation carrying the weight of a violent history.
