'Angkor Awakens' Comes to Cinemapolis

Play

Cinemapolis in Ithaca is presenting two showings of Robert H. Lieberman’s film ‘Angkor Awakens: a Portrait of Cambodia’.  The filmmaker will be at both screenings, along with Story Editor David Kossack at the November 4 screening, and Producer Deborah C. Hoard at the November 5 showing. “A sweeping and emotional portrait of Cambodia and its people. The film takes the viewer on a historical and psychological journey, stretching from the ancient past to the tension-filled present, where a young population strives to move beyond the country’s dark history.” http://wskg.org/audio/angkormix.mp3
