France Is Our Mother Country

Synopsis

France Is Our Mother Country is a story of an encounter between two cultures, two sensibilities, and two imaginations. This encounter resulted in a colonisation with no less brutality than others. By juxtaposing clips of archival footage, from the time of Cambodia’s occupation by France, and their title cards, the film examines the colonial history of Indochina.
