Reel life

Director Kuilikar Sotho with one of her leading actors, Dy Saveth
The Last Reel became more of a reality for the cast and crew as they gathered at the family home of first-time director Kulikar Sotho to watch a trailer of the movie, which will be used to drum up financial support at home and abroad, ahead of shooting, which will begin next month. Dy Saveth, who plays the family matriarch, and who is regarded as the most prominent actress of the Golden Age of Khmer Cinema, was there with the rest of the leading characters, ahead of the four to five weeks of shooting that will bring to life the story written by Ian Masters. A tale of family conflict spanning three eras; the 1960s Sihanouk era, the Khmer Rouge and contemporary times, the film will tap into the resurgence of interest in 60s and 70s cinema and music, as well as promoting independent female thought, which can't be a bad ideal in anyone's book. I'll bring you more on the film's production as it takes place, with filming locations expected to be in Siem Reap, Battambang and Phnom Penh.
