A Cambodian Winter

Tweetable Logline: A poetic road trip/coming of age story. Three young children, on the journey of a lifetime, all looking for love and happiness.

Elevator Pitch: 
You know when you stand in the supermarket trying to decide between salt & vinegar or BBQ crisps? Yeah... well these kids don't. This is Cambodia, real Cambodia. The stars are not actors, they are local children who live this life everyday and their performances are honest and amazing. Three young kids embark upon a road trip in search of the family they never had. A universal story of first love, it could be shot in any town, in any country, in any language but set against the exotic beauty and enchanting culture of Cambodia this film is artistically stunning.

Production Team: 
Forest Wise  - Director / Writer / Producer
Jaime Reynoso - Cinematographer
Ben Bartlett - Producer

About the film: 
Forest spent years in Cambodia working with these children before writing the script. Over this time he listened to stories of their lives, their wishes and their dreams and drew upon these ideas to create an honest, powerful script. The ultimate goal is to create an beautiful film that provides sustainable support for the children involved. The children are partners in the film and will share in its profits. By making a film with soul and purpose we want to tap into the audience conscience and leave something behind. In this land of contradictions the children will lead the way.

Current Status: 
Currently in post-production, editing, and running an Indiegogo campaign for finishing funds.
