SURIVING BOKATOR (dir MARK BOCHSLER, 2018)

Surviving Bokator is a powerful story about reclaiming cultural identity and building bridges between generations.

Filmed over five years, it tells of the struggle of an older genocide survivor to resurrect the ancient Cambodian martial art of Bokator — virtually lost during the brutal Khmer Rouge regime — and preserve it for the nation’s youth.

Through this journey, the film gets to the very core of the generational fracture happening in Cambodian communities around the world today, between genocide survivors determined to revive and maintain traditional ways, and Cambodia’s youth looking to forge a new path forward.
