This film was created in support of Plan UK’s #LearnWithoutFear campaign. It tells the story of Sophin, an 18 year-old girl who lives in Siem Reap in Cambodia, that was attacked by a fellow school pupil.
In contrast to the Kenya film in this series, this film was a completely different kind of challenge. The footage I received from Cambodia was gorgeous, and while Sophin’s story was a traumatic one, she’d also managed to grow stronger as a result. The difficulty then was in balancing the tone throughout the film, and our composer Nash Sibanda was a great help in this.
This film is part of a series of two films which, although very different in visual aesthetic and story, required me to craft a visual and narrative style that would compliment both films.
