Cambodia Burning

In 2018, fires burned in record numbers throughout the forests of north and central Cambodia. At their peak during the dry season between January and March, it is estimated up to 1,800 fires were burning in the country, more than in any other country throughout Southeast Asia at that time. Using a unique mix of aerial cinematography and poetry, Cambodia Burning explores the changes in the country’s landscapes brought about by deforestation and forest fires, and the emotional impacts they have had on Cambodian people.
