Nightcrawlers of Phnom Penh

Directed by James Dougan, Max Cutting and Dan Ridgeon Associate Producer Jordan Rossi | Executive Producers David Allain Katharine Round | Senior Executive Producer - Rankin 


A visceral, stunning insight into the lives of freelance reporters in the Cambodian city, who spend their nights chasing grisly scenes in the car-crash capital of the world.

Phnom Penh’s freelance reporters estimate a majority of drivers are drunk, which contributes to the city’s reputation as the car-crash capital of the world. More people are killed on Cambodia’s roads than die of HIV.

Nightcrawlers of Phnom Penh meets the fearless journalists for whom documenting the aftermath of brutal crimes and horrific road accidents is what sees them from paycheque to paycheque.

Commissioned for Hunger TV by Rankin Film Productions & Doc Heads. Winner of Vimeo Staff Pick Award.
