About the Film

Angkor’s Children is a film about Cambodia’s cultural and artistic renaissance told through the voices of three young Cambodian women who are the first generation after the Khmer Rouge genocide that killed two million people which included 90% of artists and intellectuals.

A singer of Buddhist poetry, a circus artist, and former garment workers, grassroots, protest band; these are ANGKOR’S CHILDREN. Sreypov, Phunam, and Messenger Band have stepped out of the dark past of their parents by expressing the resiliency of Cambodia through their art and advocacy. They are pioneers, and are part of a global movement of women who are changing and inspiring the world. ANGKOR’S CHILDREN is a film of hope for post-conflict nations that are also seeking renewal through cultural and artistic expression.
