A RIVER CHANGES COURSE

UK Premiere
Dir: Kalyanee Mam
Cambodia / United States / 2012 / 83mins

Deep in the jungles of Cambodia rural farmers and fishermen such as Sari Math are struggling to overcome the crushing effects of deforestation, overfishing, and overwhelming debt. Forced to make a decision between the beautiful lands they were raised in and moving closer to the cities for their families' survival, many rural Cambodians are in a no win situation.

Director Kalyanee Mam takes us on a cinematic journey, achieving a profound intimacy with the characters as they try to survive the devastation wrought by Cambodia's rapid development.
