People Grow Wings

documentary film


Part documentary part experimental short, the film is a poetic encounter with an artist born at the onset of the American bombings of Cambodia and regarded as one of the most influential names in the Cambodian contemporary art scene.

Having looked up at the skies at a young age, Leang Seckon looks inwards, reflecting on his artistic journey, the true meaning of freedom, and the potential for people to grow their wings.

The film was part of the Official Selection of the Cambodian International Film Festival (CIFF) 2022


Co-directed with Cambodian documentary photographer and filmmaker Ponita Keo
