About the Movie

Cambodia is a nation split between the brightest future and the blackest past. On one hand still tending the savage wounds wrought upon its people by the Khmer Rouge and the USA bombers before them, whilst also cultivating a vibrant and optimistic new generation. This deep and incisive portrait of a vibrant, bustling country moves beyond the verdant hills, ancient antiquities and modern metropolises to reveal a past of violence and pain which still lingers not to far below the surface...

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Angkor Awakens" won't wow you with artfulness, but as an analytical narrative of tragedy, testimony and a way ahead, it has an undeniable power. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, May 11, 2017

Fresh: A no-frills primer on the history and prospects of a troubled nation. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, May 6, 2017

Fresh: A superbly balanced picture of Cambodia then and now, a nation in a sort of stupor of post traumatic stress syndrome, denial and survivor's' guilt. – Daphne Howland, Village Voice, May 4, 2017
