Following their dream

Joe Cook and his Cambodian baseball pioneers
Cambodia's first appearance on the international Baseball stage came in the 2007 SEA Games in Thailand. They finished in last place but that's not the point. The fact that they were there at all is down to the determination of one man, Joe Cook. A new film, Rice Field of Dreams, follows Cook and his pioneering team as they prepare and compete in their first-ever international competition. The film's director is Daron Ker, a Cambodian who fled to America from a refugee camp when he was six years old and who is aiming to produce his first full-length feature movie early next year called Holiday in Cambodia. For both films Ker has employed the talented Long Beach rapper praCh Ly for the original soundtracks. When can we see it here in Cambodia? Link: website.

For a rather different view of Mr Cook, you should read this excellent article: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/eticket/story?page=JoeCook
