The Fleet

Kampot, Cambodia, Oct 2015:  Remember the infamous scene in Apocalypse Now when the Air Calvary play “Ride of the Valkyries” over helicopter mounted loud speakers during their assault on a Vietnamese village? Well this is my less explosive, amateur reference to it…

Every evening this fishing fleet heads down the Prek Thom river, through Kampot city and out to sea for a nights fishing- it is quite a sight. Most of this footage is shot from an abandoned French colonial era bridge in downtown Kampot, plus a couple of clips shot while on a boat. In recent years there has been some altercations between the fleet and alleged illegal Vietnamese fishing vessels operating in Cambodian waters.
