No Comment Cambodia!
- A Different Society From Different Angles -
The Year-3-Students of the Department of Media and Communication (DMC) at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) have produced a video documentary series about several controversial issues of Cambodia’s nowadays political, social and cultural environment.
The students wrote, shot and edited the movies by their own as final part of their broadcast journalism- and video production courses in 2013. The documentaries reflect various conflict sensitive aspects and challenges within a divided, rapidly changing post war society.
By avoiding any narrative elements (e.g. voice over explanations and comments) the student producers wanted to assure the most balanced point of view without publishing their own opinion or even delivering a judgment.
While some short documentaries focus on the Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge history and its impact until today, others open up on present trends: how to fight poverty, strengthen freedom of speech and empower the country’s next generation etc.
The project was founded by GIZ’s Civil Peace Service (Ziviler Friedensdienst) and supervised by DMC lecturer Ly You Y and GIZ advisor André Hartlapp. All video documentaries are in Cambodian language and come with English subtitles.
