Directed by Chris Kelly
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. This film is about the complexities – both political and personal – of fighting for what you believe in.
Presented as part of Human Rights Day.
Amnesty has been campaigning on behalf of the Cambodian woman, Tep Vanny, featured in this film, who was imprisoned for protesting about the forced eviction of her community in Phnom Penh and the destruction of housing to make way for tourist hotels. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 25 states that “everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for… health and well-being.” Tep Vanny was granted a royal pardon at the end of August.
Please note that there will be no trailers or adverts before this screening – the film will start at 6pm.
