BSU professor's film 'Eviction' invited to Cannes Film Festival

The short documentary film "Eviction," produced by Boise State professor Phil Atlakson and directed by his son, Garret Atlakson, was shot last year in Cambodia and brings to light violent land grabs by corporations that are supported by armed government forces.

The film has been playing festivals since October and recently was invited to Cannes as part of the American Pavilion Emerging Filmmaker Showcase.
