AsiaLENS: AEMS Documentary Film and Discussion Series at the Spurlock: Don't Think I've Forgotten

Don't Think I've Forgotten
Directed by John Pirozzi
2015 / 106 minutes / Cambodia
Introduction and post screening discussion TBA.

Through the eyes, words and songs of its popular music stars of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, this feature length documentary examines and unravels Cambodia’s tragic past, culminating in the genocidal Khmer Rouge’s dismantling of the society and murder of 2,000,000 of its citizens. Combining interviews of the surviving musicians themselves with never-before-seen archival material and rare songs, the film tracks the twist and turns of Cambodian music as it morphs into rock and roll, blossoms, and is nearly destroyed along with the rest of the country.
