Synopsis

Every dry season, the world's longest bamboo bridge (1.5 km) is built over the Mekong River in Cambodia and, each year, it is dismantled in the wake of the monsoon tides.

Recently, it was replaced by a concrete structure financed by Chinese investors.

Three generations of Cambodian workers tell the story of this building, a symbol of social and environmental transformation.
