A Cambodian Spring charts the chaotic and violent wave of change shaping modern-day Cambodia, and follows three activists over six years as they speak out against the injustices taking place all around them in the name of progress, development and democracy.

Our take

It took Irish filmmaker Chris Kelly nine years to complete this unwavering survey of the Cambodian conflict, achieving unexpected universality with his focus on the power of activism in the face of corruption. We proudly present this raw portrait of the uprising of a nation with Human Rights Watch.
