Fragile Paradise by Christian Lajoumard

The Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc is situated in the South of Vietnam.
Close to the coasts of Cambodia, it has long been a source of conflict for the two countries.
An unforgiving land with activities centered around the sea, long isolated, the island opened a few years ago to mass tourism.
The landscape and the coast changed Quickly, capital Q.
“Fragile Paradise” isn’t a multi-perspective exploration of the brutality of change in a long-static place, but the melancholic portrait of what remains at the dawn of a world turning upside-down.
