The People of Angkor
Directed by Rithy Panh, 96min, 2003, Khmer version with English subtitles
In Angkor Wat, we follow a boy and his relationships with the people who live there, the ruins and the tourists. The legends and magical stories depicted on the stones of the temple remains overlap with the reality of modern Cambodia. The lingering pain left by years of civil war, the gap between conditions in the cities and the countryside.
