Episode Details

In Cambodia, Koun is a survivor of the Khmer Rouge era. She was once a famous dancer and today contributes to the restoration of the Royal Ballet by teaching dance to children. Sre Cha, the most striking and talented of Koun’s students, dreams of performing as the divinely beautiful dancer, White Apsara. Kmao, the mischievous boy from the slums, wants to dance the role of Haunuan, the white monkey, a hero for all Cambodian boys. We see them rehearse and then perform on stage for a large audience. Dir.: Jerome Ségur. (52 min.)
