About the Film:
Directed by Kalyanee Mam. Cambodia / USA. 2012. 83 mins.
Twice a year in Cambodia, the Tonle Sap River changes course, while life for the Cambodian people continues to flow in a perpetual cycle of death and rebirth and of creation and destruction. Working in an intimate, verité style, filmmaker Kalyanee Mam (director of photography for the Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job), spent two years in her homeland following three young Cambodians as they struggled 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 devastating and beautiful story of an ancient culture ravaged by globalization. A crowd favorite at Hawaii International Film Festival 2013.
Winner: World Cinema Jury Prize, Documentary, Sundance Film Festival; Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary Feature, Atlanta Film Festival; Human Rights Award, River Run Film Festival; Grand Jury Prize, Environmental Film Festival at Yale; Documentary Feature Golden Gate Award, San Francisco International Film Festival.
