Karmalink

Jake WACHTEL Cambodia, USA 101 Min PG (Some Coarse Language) Asian Premiere

The first science fiction film from Cambodia transposes a technological future to consider the augmented possibilities of spirituality.

Technological advancements of the near future have not changed the current reality of unequal distribution in the developing nation of Cambodia. Within a neighbourhood arrested in development, a teenager becomes disengaged with his immediate reality as recurring dreams of his past life become increasingly vivid and evocative. Enlisting the help of childhood friends and a talented scavenger, they embark on a journey in search of a Buddhist treasure that will unlock the mystery of his dreams.
