BANGKOK — Select Cambodian shorts will screen for free Sunday at a Sathon art space.
Acclaimed French-Cambodian director Davy Chou selected seven shorts by emerging Cambodian filmmakers to show in Thailand – including his 2014 film “Cambodia 2099,” which explores the hopes and dreams of teenagers as they grow up working within Diamond Island, Phnom Penh’s pinnacle of development.
Chou’s previous work is the 2012 documentary “Golden Slumbers” that recounts a golden age of Cambodian cinema before the industry was brought down by the Khmer Rouge.
Other films include Neang Kavich’s “Three Wheels” and “Goodbye Phnom Penh,” Ines Sothea’s “Rice,” Chap Somchanrith’s “Fistful of Pebbles,” Tith Kanitha’s “Boding,” and “Red Ink” by Ly Polen.
Prior to the screening, there will be a talk at 2pm by Ho Rui An, a Singaporean artist keen on contemporary art, cinema, performance and theory, followed by a director talk with Davy Chou and Tith Kanitha at 6pm.
All shorts will show at 4pm Sunday at Tentacles, a gallery in Soi Narathiwas 22 which is a short walk from BRT Thanon Chan.
