For many people the mere mention of Cambodia brings to mind atrocities of the most gruesome and depressing kind. The country itself is still seen in the popular public eye as under the gauze of melancholic memory; the Khmer Rouge held power for four years, 1975-1979, but still their actions have left a mark yet to be overcome. This is the topic explored by Angkor Awakens: A Portrait of Cambodia. Although not a groundbreaking cinematic feat, it is a trip into the annals of Cambodian history. Brought to you by Robert H. Lieberman, the same director of They Call it Myanmar, thisĀ  film serves not only as an educational outlet, but also as a beacon of hope.
