Angkor, l'aventure du Baphuon

a film by Didier Fassio

 

A joint production by Cinétévé, Ecole française d'Extrême-Orient and C. TOUT COM ! International
Fabienne Servan Schreiber andLucie Pastor

With the participation of France Télévisions and Planète

Concealed in the tropical forest for hundreds of years, the Baphuon is one of the first monuments of the great city of Angkor to have been uncovered at the beginning of the twentieth century. It would take a century of restoration before the Baphuon "temple-mount" fully revealed the extraordinary technical ability and aesthetic sophistication of the Khmer civilization. A century of on-site work, punctuated by the often dramatic turns of Cambodian history. A century of uncertainties, but also unremitting dedication, on the part of a small handful of researchers and workers.
