AWARD WINNING DOCUMENTARY
ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 1st – 7PM
“A RIVER CHANGES COURSE”
WITH Q&A BY FILM MAKER KALYANEE MAM
We are happy to invite you to an exciting screening on THURSDAY 1st of August, 7PM of “A River Changes Course”, a film by Kalyanee Mam, who was the director of photography of the academy “Inside Job”, a documentary that won the academy award in 2011. Kalyanee Mam will be present for the screening and hold a Q&A.
“A River Changes Course”, produced by DCCAM, won the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Twice a year in Cambodia, the Tonle Sap River changes course, while the river of life flows in a perpetual cycle of death and rebirth and of creation and destruction. Working in an intimate, verite style, filmmaker Kalyanee Mam spent two years in her native homeland following three young Cambodians struggling to overcome the crushing effects of deforestation, overfishing, and overwhelming debt. A breathtaking and unprecedented journey from the remote, mountainous jungles and floating cities of the Cambodian countryside to the bustling garment factories of modern Phnom Penh, “A River Changes Course” traces a remarkable and devastatingly beautiful story of a country torn between the rural present and an ominous industrial future.
We hope to see you there
