The screening on Thu 24 May (19.50) will be followed by a Q&A with director Chris Kelly and the Venerable Sovath.

This intimate documentary focuses on three remarkable individuals to explore the chaotic, and often violent, developments shaping modern-day Cambodia. They are Buddhist monk and award-winning activist Venerable Loun Sovath, housing rights activist and mother Toul Srey Pov, and the appointed leader of Cambodia’s most high-profile forced eviction, Tep Vanny. Six years in the making, Christopher Kelly’s debut feature charts the growing wave of land-rights protests that led to the ‘Cambodian Spring’ and the tragic events that followed - exploring the complexities of fighting for what you believe in. 

...a raw, intimate portrait of grassroots activism, and reminder that big moments in history are made up of individuals bold enough to take a stand – and, in this case, who simply have nothing left to lose.
