Nine Circles of Hell, a love story set during the Khmer Rouge regime, was filmed in Cambodia in 1987, as I explained in an earlier blog posting here and featured a Czech-Cambodian collaboration. Though I won't be there, you can see it at Bophana Center on St 200 at 4pm this Saturday (20th Feb). It'll be the Khmer version, rather than the Czech version! On the subject of filming, various locations around Phnom Penh have been used in the past week for filming of National Geographic tv's Banged Up Abroad, a series of programmes showing Westerners who end up in foreign prisons. This particular programme is not about Cambodia but is being used as a 'stand-in' location for Thailand.
