Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll
Dir. John Pirozzi, 105 mins, USA/Cambodia/France, 2015
Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll is a documentary exploring the unique music that flourished in 1960s and early 1970s Cambodia. With the Vietnam War threatening Cambodia’s borders, the country’s young musicians applied traditional melodies to Western rock influences, creating a distinct and tantalizing sound. When the Khmer Rouge took control of the country, it targeted and eliminated Western influences and killed an estimated two million people. We’re proud to screen this new perspective on Cambodia and celebrate its rebellious, exciting music.
