In Cambodia’s countryside, farmers mow with a sickle under the sun. Across the rice field, two combine harvesters do the same in a few minutes and separate the seed from the stem.
On a road under construction, trucks carrying rice bags meet other trucks transporting female workers to the factory.
In Phnom Penh, textile workers demonstrate in front of empty luxury shops.
Happy Âphivoat portrays the country’s development, shifting from an agrarian economy to an industrial economy, and its emerging working class. An echo to the world history to class warfare.
