Denok & Gareng back to movies

a river changing courses - cambodia
  • Country: Cambodia
  • Director: Anne Bass
  • Year: 2010
  • Duration: 88'

In the constant stream of hoping, failing and making new plans, Denok and Gareng stay united in their passionate struggle to make it up the hill one day. In the modest house of Gareng’s mum, the young Muslim couple starts a small pig business, looking for the lucky streak to come over the family. But new challenges constantly arise, putting their cheerfulness and patience on trial.

In an entirely observational approach, this film explores a strong loving relationship inside a strikingly vivid family that sticks together, fights back and laughs, about what others would call a Sisyphus fate.
