A Minor Loss

Connected to the Mekong, more than 60 million people are today threatened. Almost the equivalent of the population in the UK. Following 3 characters in Cambodia: a villager activist, an analyst and a painter, A Minor Loss explores the bet, which may be irreversible, taken over the indigenous or non-indigenous peoples who depend directly on the natural resources of the Mekong. Whereas civil society groups in Europe and around the world today reinvent democracy, strive to design a local economy based on solidarity; indigenous peoples, their way of life and their connection to nature seem to be an endangered society model for all of us. A model of society which stands today as a safeguard for humankind.
