Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock And Roll

Series: Mississippi Records Music & Film

Mississippi Records 20th Anniversary Film Festival Part 2

DON'T THINK I'VE FORGOTTEN: CAMBODIA'S LOST ROCK AND ROLL is a beautiful film that tracks the twists and turns of Cambodian music as it morphs into rock and roll, blossoms, and is nearly destroyed along with the rest of the country. This documentary film provides a new perspective on a country usually associated with only war and genocide.

During the 1960’s and early 1970’s, as the war in Vietnam threatened its borders, a new music scene emerged in Cambodia that took Western rock and roll and stood it on its head – creating a sound like no other. Cambodian musicians crafted this sound from the various rock music styles sweeping America, England and France, adding the unique melodies and hypnotic rhythms of their traditional music.

It's a beautiful film about the importance of art that will remind you it's all worth doing.
