Kampuchea: Death and Resurrection

Kampuchea - Sterben und Auferstehen

East Germany, 1980


The scenes filmed during spring 1979 in Kampuchea/Cambodia are part of history: a metropolis left to rampant nature, skull heaps, destroyed faces and cultural landscapes. The reports of the survivors – farmers, states men, teachers and former soldiers – are moving and harrowing.
