Earth Diaries—Angkor Wat

Posted on 5/31/2016 2:27:00 PM in What We’re Watching

A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

In this Earth Diaries episode we travel to Angkor Wat in Cambodia, a temple complex that encompasses over 1,000 temples and spreads over 154 square miles. Built by the Khmer civilization between 802 and 1220 AD, and drawing over 2 million visitors each year, the temple complex of Angkor is the largest religious monument in the world. This film gives us a glimpse into Angkor Wat’s lush jungle setting in northern Cambodia, the beautiful and symbolic bas-relief friezes skillfully carved throughout the temples; and their many elevated towers, covered galleries, chambers, and courtyards linked by stairways. These are structures of homage, linking mystery to ruling power to great craftsmanship and arduous labor.
