An arts festival that seeks to reclaim colonized space and celebrate the renaissance of a rich and vibrant culture.
Bokor Arts Festival
The deserted Bokor Hill Station sits atop Mount Bokor in the Elephant Mountain range, outside of the rural town of Kampot in Cambodia. The hotel was originally built for French colonialists as an escape of the heat and humidity, but now stands deserted and haunts of Cambodia's colonial past. In the 1970's Cambodia's population was decimated by the genocide orchestrated by Pol Pot's brutal Khmer Rouge regime, killing one-third of the country's population and 90% of its artists.
