Description
A Cambodian Spring

On Wednesday 23 May, the HRLC will present, in collaboration with the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ICCSR), the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice, the School of Geography, and hosted by Broadway Cinema: A Cambodian Spring.

View details of the film and trailers and book your ticket.

Shot over six years, A Cambodian Spring is an intimate portrait of three people caught up in the chaotic and aggressive sweep of forced evictions and land grabbing in the name of "economic progress".

A Q&A with filmmaker Chris Kelly and the star of the film Venerable Sovath will follow the screening. Michelle Kelsall, PhD candidate in the School of Law with a thesis focusing on corporate responsibility to respect human rights, will also join the discussion. She previously lived in Cambodia and worked for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Phnom Penh from 2010-2015. The Office was heavily involved with attempting to prevent forced evictions in the country, including with the communities on Boeung Kak Lake, which are featured in the film.
