CINEMA ORANGE: A RIVER CHANGES COURSE

  • January 15 2016
  • 07:00 pm - 09:00 pm

Join us for the first Cinema Orange Screening of the 2016, “A River Changes Course.” This event is presented by Newport Beach Film Festival and Orange County Museum of Art, in conjunction with the OCMA exhibition The Pacific Project: Khvay Samnang.

Twice a year in Cambodia, the Tonle Sap River changes course, while life for the Cambodian people continue to flow in a perpetual cycle of death and rebirth and of creation and destruction. Working in an intimate, verité style, filmmaker Kalyanee Mam (Director of Photography for the Oscar-winning documentary Inside Job), spent two years in her native homeland following three young Cambodians as they struggled to overcome the crushing effects of deforestation, overfishing, and overwhelming debt. A breathtaking and unprecedented journey from the remote, mountainous jungles and floating cities of the Cambodian countryside to the bustling garment factories of modern Phnom Penh, A RIVER CHANGES COURSE traces a devastating and beautiful story of an ancient culture ravaged by globalization.
