Summary, etc.: Two modern day countries dispute over an ancient temple, but why? What is so important about this ancient ruin from the 11th century? Life and Death at Preah Vihear captures the conflict between two neighboring countries of Southeast Asia; Thailand and Cambodia, and the impact of colonial encounter with the West had on these countries and much of Southeast Asia. Filmed over a span of 5 years, David Feingold sheds much needed light on the political and cultural divisions beneath the conflict over the ancient temple of Preah Vihear (Khmer)/Khao Phra Viharn (Thai). This film puts the present disputes of these two countries into historical context and captures the wonder, magnificence, and symbolism of the Hindu temple itself.
