LIVES AT THE BORDER

  • 9/26 (Sat) @ 8:30pm

A film by Pierre Raimond

Lives at the Border

This film is the portrait of Vuthy, a young Cambodian who has dedicated himself to improving the lives of others. He has been working with NGO Friends-International for fifteen years, managing a small team at the border between Thailand and Cambodia. This is a very sensitive area as many Cambodians take their chances in Thailand, hoping to make a living for their family. Often outlawed, they unfortunately face human trafficking networks and corruption. Many of them will get caught in a downward spiral of gambling, drug abuse, begging and prostitution.

The film crew followed Vuthy at work with street children and clandestine migrants for over four years, at the border of two realms, at the line between what’s legal and illicit, between childhood and vagrancy, innocence and violence. Destiny served a tough life to those that a handful of men and women fight to improve.
