This film explores the life of Vann Molyvann, an architect whose work came to represent a new identity for a country emerging from independence, and whose incredible story encompasses Cambodia’s turbulent journey as a modern nation. In Cambodia’s post-independence period, Molyvann had been at the center of a renaissance, developing a distinctive architectural style, New Khmer Architecture. Returning in the 1990s, Molyvann is marginalized from public life and many of his works are destroyed or neglected.
