Broken Dance

Atmospheric trailer about Cambodia/Music Video

What if you were born in the body of a little girl, who's family live in a distant, tropical country on a vast lake? All of your existence is governed by the realms of water and stone, in a country with a huge cultural heritage, having survived terrible events of an inhuman political regime...

What does it mean to be a Cambodian girl?
Our project "Broken Dance" is a small ethnographic observation, executed in the format of a music video that aims to enable the western viewer to delve both into the ancient "spirit" and the modern atmosphere of the colourful and mysterious country of Cambodia.
