Angkor Awakens - An Inside Look at Cambodia is an eye-opening documentary snapshot of a nation poised at a political and cultural tipping point. Viewing the present through the lens of the country’s tangled history, the film follows the people of Cambodia as they fight to recover their culture and history in the wake of the Khmer Rouge genocide (1975-1979). Though the legacy of past violence and present-day repression lives on, it is counterbalanced by the hopes and aspirations of Cambodia’s new generation. Angkor Awakens is built around intimate interviews—including an unprecedented appearance by Cambodia’s Strongman/Prime Minister Hun Sen. Containing stunning footage of the country, this film provides a window into the lives of one of Asia's youngest populations as it seeks to leave behind its brutal past. From the director and producers of They Call It Myanmar: Lifting the Curtain. (Partially subtitled)
