“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 six 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 – both political and personal, of fighting for what you believe in.

Debut director Christopher Kelly gives us an intimate, visceral, eye-opening journey into the heart of an important story that feels like it needs to be told.The National (Scotland)
