"A River Changes Course"

World Cinema Documentary

*** (three stars)

This gently sweeping documentary uses striking imagery to detail the human toll of overfishing, deforestation and industrialization in Cambodia. Director Kalyanee Mam follows the lives of peasants living on the rivers and in the hillsides, where the fish and rice crops are increasingly rare — and the next generation is moving to the cities to work in factories. Mam's camera finds beauty in this environmental devastation, and in the resiliency of families struggling to survive.
