    At the wedding of Moon, near the Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia, we get to know the dramatic situation of people in her village who face land grabbing and forced migration.
    The film has been made during the research for the feature length documentary Silent Land. That film will tell the stories of farmers around the world, who are threatened by multinationals investing in agriculture in a neo-colonial way. The famers fight for their land, which plays an essential role  for the food security in their region.
    Silent Land, a sequel to the award winning film Silent Snow (2011).
