Please join us at this year’s VAFF for the screening of The Roots Remain + Away From the Grasslands.

About The Roots Remain:
In an emotional tribute, Montreal graffiti artist Fonki returns to Cambodia to paint a giant mural of his relatives killed in the Khmer Rouge genocide. During his time there, he connects with a group of Cambodian youth who have also returned, hoping to breathe new life into their destroyed culture. Crafted from over 100 hours of HD footage, as well as 16mm newsreels and propaganda footage shot by the Khmer Rouge, the film follows one member of the Cambodian diaspora who discovers his roots in the heart of modern Cambodia.
