A couple of films in the offing, that may or may not see the light of day. Paulina is a short film project by Cambodian filmmaker Caylee So, who moved to the United States from a refugee camp on the Thai border. It's a coming-of-age story about a teenage Khmer girl, Paulina, who has to choose between gambling addiction and a life outside of the tight-knit gambling community, set in Long Beach. The film's premiere will be on 20 April at Chapman University in California. Watch out for this budding writer-director.
Another story that may be told is the plight of missing journalists in Lost Brothers, a film project that Tim Page, one of the Vietnam War's most celebrated photographers is trying to put together, as he searches for lost journalists from the Cambodian conflict of the 1970s. We've heard the story of Sean Flynn and Dana Stone many times already but it's a search that Page is determined to complete, to find the truth about what really happened to his friends and colleagues, and to document it on film.
