My Cambodia was a result of a 14 day Youth Expedition Project, service learning trip organised by Ngee Ann Polytechnic with support from the National Youth Council of Singapore. 21 students from the School of Film & Media Studies travelled to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Originally meant to be a mere record of what we saw, it morphed into a collection of perceptions and emotions. We listened and learnt closely from the locals we met. And tried to recreate the simple happiness we experienced from them. This film explores the hopes of a local Khmer child in a letter written to her mother (who is working in another part of Cambodia to provide for her family.)
The film has won second runner-up in Adobe Youth Voices competition. With the help from Adobe, the team had made USD$500 worth of donation under Kevin's name to the following 10 organisations in Cambodia:
