In her directorial debut, award-winning filmmaker Kalyanee Mam traveled to her native Cambodia to capture the stories of three young people struggling to maintain their traditional way of life while the modern world closes in around them. Their stories provide a human perspective on the impacts of deforestation, collapsing fisheries, and the often-empty promises of factory work in the city.
Join us for a preview of the MacArthur-supported documentary “A River Changes Course,” followed by a panel discussion about the development issues explored in the film with the filmmaker and conservation and security experts.
MacArthur President Robert Gallucci will deliver opening remarks.
The panel will include:
• Kalyanee Mam, Director/Producer of A River Changes Course, and producer and cinematographer on the 2011 Oscar Award winning documentary, Inside Job
• Richard Cronin, Director of the Southeast Asia Program, Stimson Center
• Leslie S. Kaufman, Marine Conservation Fellow, Conservation International, amd Professor of Biology, Boston University
• Joe Walston, Executive Director of the Asia Program, Wildlife Conservation Society
• Sandra Postel, Freshwater Conservationist, Founder of the Global Water Policy Project and National Geographic Fellow
A reception for attendees will follow.
