Golden Dragon

Neak Meas

Vicheka wakes up in hospital, adrift in a world of dreams and memories. With the help of a local nurse, he sets about piecing together the fragments of his past that have led him back to the city of his childhood. Boren Chhith’s delicate drama observes the interplay between personal trauma and national transformation, visualised through the shifting urban landscapes of contemporary Cambodia.
