Director Statement

Cambodian films in recent years have reached the spotlight on international stages and right now Jailbreak is following the same path.
It's a film that highlights the potential of a country that for a long time was deprived of art and expression and it's slowly standing up back on his feet.
Under the shades of the action comedy genre, Jailbreak aims to engage the audience into a roller coaster of dynamic fight sequences and silly comedy moments.
