Angkor Awakens

A nation split between past and future

Angkor Awakens Cambodia is a nation split between the past and the future; tending to the savage wounds wrought upon its people by the Khmer Rouge, whilst preparing for a bright future through a young and determined new generation. This deep and incisive portrait of a vibrant and bustling country moves through verdant hills, ancient stone steps and swarming metropolises to reveal a past full of violence and pain, but also a future of hope and expectation.
