"A moving and informative documentary...It is also a rich and defiant effort at recovery, showing that even the most murderous totalitarianism cannot fully erase the human drive for pleasure and self-expression." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times
The value of this lively and moving documentary is to reduce (but by no means trivialize) the nearly incomprehensible tragedy of Cambodia to more accessible dimensions. Its subject is the country's vibrant pop music scene, which flourished under the arts-friendly regime of Prince Sihanouk, even as the shadow of war grew in neighboring Vietnam. In Khmer, English, and French with English subtitles. DCP digital.
