Screening ‘The Last Breath of Tonle Sap‘: First-Hand Experiences of Climate Change

With our workshop at COP26 in Glasgow UK, we aimed to stimulate and deepen discussions on climate change and human rights. We also wished to stimulate the audience in identifying potential initiatives related to human rights, climate change adaptation, and healthy eco-systems that can help ensure a just transition that protects the rights of people – while building social-ecological resilience.


Screening ‘The Last Breath of Tonle Sap‘: First-Hand Experiences of Climate Change


We started out by screening a short but eye-opening movie – “The Last Breath of Tonle Sap”, Cambodia, produced by Thomas Christopheletti and Robin Narcisso. The directors won the RWI Asia Pacific Award at the Mini Kino film week 7 in 2021. The film showcases the first-hand experiences of a fishing family living on the edge of the Tonle Sap Lake. The lake has been their source for life for generations. But, life is becoming increasingly difficult as the lake does not provide as it used to. The family deals with climate change and other environmental challenges. The members of the family worry that they will not have enough food for everyone. Food insecurity and socio-economic challenges are just some of the many issues that they are experiencing.
