IFI DOCUMENTARY FESTIVAL: A Cambodian Spring

CHRIS KELLY

Book Tickets

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Chris Kelly.

An intimate portrait of three people caught up in the chaotic and often violent developments shaping modern-day Cambodia.

Shot by Irish director Chris Kelly over six years, the film charts the gradual politicisation of two young mothers and one Buddhist monk, the growing wave of land-rights protests that led to the ‘Cambodian Spring’, and the tragic events that followed. Winner at Toronto Hot Docs for best international feature, the film is about the complexities, both political and personal, of fighting for what you believe in.

This screening is part of the IFI Documentary Festival 2017, running from September 27th to October 1st. Find out more about the festival here.
