Along with the other horrors Pol Pot inflicted on a generation of Cambodians, the policy of forced marriage has left a lasting legacy to this day. Between 1970 to 1979 approximately 250,000 women were forced into marriage, in many cases to people they had never met before. Those who refused to get married were at risk of imprisonment or death. This short fictional film is inspired by personal accounts of victims of this bizarre policy that was supposedly designed to dramatically increase the population, in order to create more ‘revolutionaries’. The Tree is a recurring reference in the world of the Khmer Rouge. It is a place of congregation. It is a place of forced marriage. It is a place of death.
