Directed by Kalyanee Mam. 83 min.
Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Documentary at Sundance as well as numerous other international awards, A RIVER CHANGES COURSE tells the story of three families in contemporary Cambodia as they face hard choices forced by rapid development and struggle to maintain their traditional ways of life. Widely lauded for its lyrical choreography and quiet, unobtrusive style, the film offers no easy answers to the dilemmas of globalization. It makes its case instead by painting an intimate portrait of human lives in transition.
