Just a few prompts on some upcoming film showings which might be of interest. Tomorrow night (Thursday) at Meta House, from 7pm, there will be two short films, with English subtitles, on the justice and reconciliation process for survivors of the Khmer Rouge period. This Saturday (5 Jan) at 8pm at the French Institute cinema, the film of the play Cambodia, Here I Am, will be screened in Khmer language with the playwright and the actresses on hand to answer questions. On Sunday (6 Jan) and back at Meta House, filmmaker Marc Eberle will talk about, and screen, his film, Aung San Suu Kyi: The Choice, an hour long documentary on the Burmese Nobel Peace Prize winner at 7pm. A very different type of film, a two hour documentary by Kevin MacDonald, will be shown at Meta House on Thursday 17 Jan, called The Reggae Prophet: The Life of Bob Marley, the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary and legend from 7pm. If you've never heard of Bob Marley, go immediately to a dark room and lie down. After one hour, get up and google him. He gave reggae music an international appeal. There will never be another Bob Marley.
On Saturday 19 Jan you'll be spoiled for choice with a contemporary dance piece showcasing that night at the Dept of Performing Arts with Belle (seen in the photo above), Narim and other dancers collaborating with Korean choreographer, Chung Yeun Soo - which will clash with the latest visit from Phare Ponleu Selpak to the Beeline Arena in Phnom Penh with their circus show called Chills.
