Angkors children

Discussion with the director (VMA professor) and special guests will follow.
Lauren Shaw, 66 minutes, Cambodia, 2014.
A film about Cambodia’s cultural and artistic renaissance told through the voices of three young Cambodian women. A singer of Buddhist poetry, a circus artist, and former garment workers, grassroots, protest band; these are Angkor’s Children. They are members of the generation after the Khmer Rouge regime that tragically killed 90% of artists and intellectuals.

Sreypov, Phunam, and Messenger Band have stepped out of the dark past of their parents by expressing the resiliency of Cambodia through their art and advocacy. They are pioneers, and are part of a global movement of women who are changing and inspiring the world.

Check out a preview of the film:
