In Cambodia, where Khmer is the national language, other minority languages coexist. Much more than a communication tool, these languages that we inherit, learn or lose are instruments of construction, creativity and sometimes isolation. The speakers, composed of linguist, translator, author and activist, will unveil the intimate links between languages and identity. The speakers : Phoeung Kompheak (teacher, translator, dramatist), So Phina (writer, publisher), Leb Ke (Cham language scolar), Jean-Sien Kin (Ponleu editions president).
