Angkor Awakens: A Portrait of Cambodia will introduce audiences to Cambodia’s history; specifically, the Cambodian genocide, its effects on the Cambodian community, as well as the efforts taken to revitalize the culture lost in its wake. The goal of this film screening is to not only inform the UCLA community of our culture, but also to spark discussion on coping with trauma, the refugee experience, and what it means to be Southeast Asian. Ultimately, this event will serve as a bridge to bring people, whether or not they are Cambodian, Southeast Asian, or refugees/children of refugees, together to share their backgrounds and experiences.
