Good luck to you

Meta House will host another Cambodian film premiere next week, Good Luck for You Everyday, this time the story of former Cambodian actress Peng Phan, who has appeared in three of Rithy Panh's films, and who has turned her home into an orphanage, NACA and devoted her time to the thirty children there. The hour long film was created by two Spanish filmmakers, Raul Abellan and Marc Sarrado and will be shown at the new Meta House HQ on Tuesday 28 September at 7pm. In a double bill, you can also watch The Conscience of Nhem En by director Steven Okazaki, a short documentary that received an Oscar nomination and contains interviews with the S-21 photographer Nhem En as well as S-21 survivors.

Hollywood seems to be showing interest again in filming in Cambodia. This time the movie will focus on the period of time that we all want to see on the big screen, the Angkorian period.
The suggestion is that Jayavarman VII will be a central character in the film, that will take at least 3 years to come to production at a cost of upwards of $70million. Tony Schiena, a Hollywood actor was at the press conference to announce the proposed film that will be made with full support from government ministries. The film will be called 'Great Khmer Empire', which sounds a bit iffy but if it comes to fruition and is a good film, it'll be a massive boost for Cambodia and Cambodians. We'll wait and see how this develops. Fingers crossed.
