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. Shot over six years, the film charts the growing wave of land-rights protests that led to the 'Cambodian spring' and the tragic events that followed. This film is about the complexities - both political and personal, of fighting for what you believe in.

The film is introduced by Dr Anne-Meike Fechter and presented by the Sussex Asia Centre School of Global Studies, and the Sussex Centre for Human Rights Research, School of Law. Followed by a question and answer session with filmmaker Chris Kelly and film participant Venerable Sovath, hosted by Lewes Amnesty International chair Ian McClelland.
