Angkor Awakens: An Inside Look at Cambodia

Sponsored by John Swift / Rotary Peace Centers

This is an extremely compelling look at modern Cambodia — a society at a tipping point, where one of Asia’s youngest populations is rebuilding its culture and learning about its past. Director Robert H. Lieberman, a child of the Holocaust, begins by taking us back in time to explore the parallels between two genocides. The film sweeps from the ancient Angkor Kingdom to today’s modern Cambodia as it emerges from the recent horrific past its elders are uncomfortable talking about. Creative animation helps tell this important, cautious tale. 85 min. USA. TRAILER
