Cambodian feature Ruin presents an enigmatic love on the run set in Cambodia. A journey that subjects the responsibilities of adulthood upon a young couple en route to a better livelihood. Directed by Michael Cody and Amiel Courtin-Wilson (previously featured on EK for their film HAIL).
Official synopsis can be read as follows:
“RUIN is an impressionistic fable – the story of Phirun (Rous Mony) and Sovanna (Sang Malen) – two young lovers inexplicably drawn together who escape a brutal and exploitative world of crime and violence in modern day Cambodia.
Fleeing Phnom Penh after a murder, they travel deeper into the jungle. As their vulnerable love ebbs and flows along their journey, they wake from the trauma of their former lives and unleash a violent rage upon the world. Love and death intermingle as they travel deeper into the abyss- their world strangely transforming around the two young lovers on the run.”
