Buoyancy

Shot in Cambodia by Australian director Rodd Rathjen, BUOYANCY is a poignant and brutal drama about human trafficking. Portraying workers who are sold into slavery on Thai fishing vessels, the plight of human cargo is explored in the bleakest of ways by Rathjen. We follow a young Cambodian boy, Chakra (Sarm Heng), who after making hasty plans to cross the border into Thailand, becomes a captive on a fishing trawler - and realises that his only hope for escape might be becoming as violent as his captors. A powerful summation of a pertinent issue - an industry that exploits immigrants - BUOYANCY is a harrowing watch, but an important one.

Some English language, some Khmer language with English subtitles.
