Cambodia: Fight for Areng Valley

In a remote Cambodian valley, the Chong people fight to protect their forests and livelihood from the looming construction of a hydroelectric dam by Sinohydro, a Chinese company. If that happens, the Chong will be displaced and their forest home — an invaluable hotspot of biological diversity — will be destroyed. Filmmaker Kalyanne Mam documents the plight of the Chong in her film Fight for Areng Valley. Produced in collaboration with the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting.
