The Road to Freedom, the film inspired by the disappearance of journalists Sean Flynn and Dana Stone in Cambodia in 1970, whilst he was in Cannes today. His war adventure drama, which had a successful Hollywood premiere last month, attended by one of my fave actresses, Tippi Hedren, star of Hitchcock's The Birds, will be part of the prestigious Cannes film festival which began yesterday and runs until the 23rd. It should be ready to show in Cambodia sometime around September. Moriarty, who spent some of his childhood here, shot TRTF entirely in Cambodia, particularly around Kep and Kampot, and is keen to use Cambodia as the backdrop for future productions. The production company that worked on TRTF also has a big budget war drama entitled Kings of Angkor: The Army of a Thousand Elephants on the drawing board. Find out more about TRTF here.
