Les gens d' Angkor
Sinopsis This is not just one more film about the monuments of Angkor, their history or their architecture. This film is about the people who live there. An inside view, in the shadow of the temples and the great forests, an inhabited shadow that the world’s tourists pass through unawares, wrapped up in contemplating the treasures of Khmer art.
