Award for Mam

Kalyanee Mam on stage to receive her award
A fabulous reward for Kalyanee Mam’s documentary, A River Changes Course, has arrived in the form of winning the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in the USA this week. The film addresses the issue of land rights and follows the story of three Cambodians affected by this countrywide hot topic. Mam, a lawyer and human rights activist as well as filmmaker, said:
"We're so shocked, the film is about family, a universal film. Not just about globalization but about our connection with each other. Events like these bring our communities together, to celebrate the beauty of our world."
