The land of the wandering souls

Directed by Rithy Panh, 102min, 1999, Khmer version with English subtitles

The documentary follows a group of workers who are laying a high-tech fiber optic cable that will link Cambodia to the rest of Asia and Europe. This film provides a haunting glimpse into the lives of these workers as they encounter the painful remnants of the past – mines, bones, and a landscaped littered with human suffering- and labor to bring Cambodia into the modern age.
