The Cause of Progress

For the last three years Irish filmmaker Chris Kelly has been making an important film about forced evictions and land grabbing in Cambodia. Over half a million people in the country live under the threat of being thrown out of their homes or off their land as premier Hun Sen grants concessions for more than one third of the country’s most profitable land for commercial development by private companies. Chris’s film follows three Cambodians whose lives are embroiled in this – and who are fighting back.
