On The Road
As COVID-19 broke out in early 2020, Melbourne University's international student Cathy Yang was forced to embark on a long journey through Cambodia in order to return to her study in Australia. She is one of over 100,000 Chinese international affected by the Australian government's China travel ban policy.
Wandering among the ancient temple ruins of Angkor Wat, she tells her story. Visions of history, the pandemic world and present time intertwine with each other. The metaphor of travel as life brings a message of the human condition, and our universal connection.
