Cambodian corruption and greed meets three dedicated activists, one of whom is a Buddhist monk!

How much would you sacrifice to fight for what you believe in? A Cambodian Spring is an intimate and unique portrait of three people caught up in the chaotic and often violent development that is shaping modern-day Cambodia. Shot over six years, the film charts the growing wave of land-rights protests that led to the “Cambodian Spring” and the tragic events that followed. This film is about the complexities – both political and personal – of fighting for what you believe in.
