Silent Land

52 minutes / 75 minutes

Seng Channeang, a young Cambodian farmer, sees her village surrounded by land grabbers. She’s afraid of being the next victim. We follow her four dramatic years until her daughter celebrates her first birthday. Her counterpart is His Excellency Mong Reththy, one of the richest men in the country. After Pol Pot took away all land titles it was an easy job for him to build up his empire. At the end Mong Reththy thanks the army for their support. Seng Channeang hopes her daughter will study law and will for the rights of the small scale farmers.
