When the Sea Sends Forth a Forest

Country: China Year: 2021 Duration: 21 mins.
Sinopsys:
With "When the sea sends forth a forest", Guangli Liu addresses the forgotten history of Cambodia's Chinese community, which was persecuted, expelled and killed by the Khmer Rouge and abandoned by China in all of this. Given the lack of historical footage from the country, which was completely sealed off from the outside world at the time, Guangli Liu uses two very contradictory sources; on the one hand, the regime's propaganda videos and, on the other, the horror images that were disseminated around the world after its fall. Guangli Liu virtuously interweaves the old footage with 3D representations from a game engine to create a unique visual story.
