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

The Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights, and the Division of Global Affairs  co-sponsored the film screening  “Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock N Roll” featuring Director, John Pirozzi. 

Through the eyes, words, and songs of its popular music stars of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, 'Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock & Roll' examines and unravels Cambodia's tragic past, culminating in the genocidal Khmer Rouge's dismantling of the society and murder of two million of its citizens. Combining interviews of the surviving Cambodian musicians themselves (a total of 150 hours of interviews were filmed) with never-before-seen archival material and rare songs, this documentary 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.' Our own DGA Master’s student Fatily Sa has worked to organized and coordinate this event.
