PHARE CIRCUS RISING

How do you cope with anxieties from a traumatic life event? How do you stay positive, hopeful and healthy to face life’s challenges? “Phare Circus Rising” is about resilience, solidarity and harmony between humans and all of mother nature. The artists and musicians share what has kept them going during the pandemic: how they cope,  reach their potential, restore hope and optimism, and express their joy of being on stage and putting smiles on faces.

ECLIPSE

How far would someone go to fight back against rejection and bullying? In a rural Cambodian village, a disfigured young man is rejected and seeks help from the gods. They answer his prayers by transforming him into a beautiful woman with magical powers. Using this new form, he attracts the attention and desire of the village men, but they discover there’s something sinister about the newcomer in their midst.

WHITE GOLD

In the Khmer language, “nourishment” cannot be expressed without the word “rice”. Cambodians are born, live, work and die in the rice fields. Balance between Buddhist principles of moderation and demands of modern society.
