On The Move / Rosat

By Minea Heng

Cambodia | In Khmer with English subtitles | 2019 | 12 min 5 sec | PG

 

In the Banteay Meanchey province of Cambodia, a family—Vai Sok, his wife Mom Beng and their young daughter Chanra— are in constant search of shelter. They set up makeshift tents in open spaces but face the reality of being evicted on a regular basis. Their only source of income is from delivery services they provide using their hand-drawn wooden cart, which also houses all their belongings. Mom dreams of a more stable life in Thailand, but Vai is content with just having his family close by. 

On the Move was selected for the Cambodia Town Film Festival (2020) in California, and New Narratives Film Festival (2020) in Taipei.

This film is also available for online viewing in Singapore, during the festival period 2-25 July 2021.

Minea Heng (b. 1999, Cambodia) is interested in how documentary filmmaking can shed light on social issues in her community such as domestic violence, migration and discrimination against women. In 2019, she joined Bophana Audiovisual Resource Centre’s Amplifying Voices of Indigenous Women and Discriminated Groups through Innovative Multimedia filmmaking programme. On the Move is one of her first films that she made.
