Mekong, the Progress Traps
Directed by Daniel Vin, 32 min, 2013, Khmer version
It is no accident that the Mekong River, symbolized by the Naga, is a source of happiness and fertility in Cambodia. The numerous hydro-electrical dam projects, mostly on its lower main stream, pose big risks for the riparian countries fish resources. This documentary reviews the situation of these projects and provides testimonies of fishermen and scientific observers.
