Revival and resilience

Year 33: The Art of Resilience is a feature-length documentary, expected to be released later this year, looking at the lives of three young Khmer artists and through them the revival of the arts here in Cambodia. Despite personal hardships and loss, a dancer, a fiber artist and a painter find strength, freedom and self expression in their artistic endeavors.The title of the film comes form the 33rd anniversary of the period when as many as 90% of artists lost their lives to the Khmer Rouge regime. The dancer is none other than Nam Narim, who is a fabulous dancer in both the classical and contemporary fields and is the grand-daughter of the legendary dance master Em Theay. The painter is the popular Mao Soviet from Battambang and Chea Vanny is a textile maker. Kathryn Lejeune is the director of Year 33, which is being made by Sueno Films.
