My Cambodia (កម្ពុជារបស់ខ្ញុំ)

My Cambodia was a result of a 14 day Youth Expedition Project service learning trip organised by Ngee Ann Polytechnic with support from the National Youth Council of Singapore. 21 students from the School of Film & Media Studies travelled to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Originally meant to merely record what we saw, it morphed into a collection of perceptions and emotions. We listened and learnt closely from the locals we met and tried to recreate the simple happiness we experienced firsthand. This film explores the hopes of a local Khmer child in a letter written to her mother, who is working in another part of Cambodia to provide for her family.
