The Last Refuge
Anne-Laure Porée, Guillaume Soun, 2013
Cambodia | 55 minutes

The Last Refuge follows the resistance of the Bunong, who have been living for centuries on the hills of eastern Cambodia, confronting alienation and annihilation by foreign companies who steal their lands, clear their sacred forests and their traditional cemeteries in order to cultivate rubber plants. In early 2010, a group of "resistants" took refuge on the land of their ancestors in the heart of the forest and recreated a field out of respect for traditional Bunong values.
