|David Puttnam at Meta House tonight|
What a pity that I didn't get the chance to thank Lord David Puttnam in
person for helping to change my life. Two of the films he created, The
Killing Fields and The Mission have had major impacts on me personally.
It goes without saying that my Cambodia connections have shaped my later
years, but introducing me to the music of Ennio Morricone and Incantation through The
Mission had a monumental effect on me as well. But it was great to hear
him talk about the watershed film he produced back in the mid-80s and
watched for the first time with a Cambodian audience in Cambodia. The
snippets he gave and the answers he provided to the Q&A session
afterwards were enthralling. Just wished it could've lasted a few hours
longer! He's now a trade envoy to the Indochina region so hopefully he
will be back again.
