  • McCullin (2013) documentary screening at Meta House

    McCullin (2013)
    Directed by Jacqui Morris and David Morris
    Duration: 1 hour, 29 minutes

    Official blurb: This made-for-cinema documentary shows how Don McCullin created some of the latter twentieth-century’s most iconic images of man’s inhumanity to man. Working at a critical time in global photojournalism, he witnessed the change of ethos to publishing and editorial freedom for newspapers to print what they wanted, free from constraints of advertisers.

    He brought the impact and reality of human conflict to the general reader, going on war assignments sometimes with only twenty rolls of film. He was shooting with a respect for image now disappearing from the digital age; and we have shot our film on 16mm in order to compliment his work.

    Review from Cath Clarke, Time Out:
    Interviewed at home, McCullin, 77, comes across as a man possessed of moral conviction, direct and down-to-earth: ‘I’m not an artist or poet. I’m a photographer.’ His former editor at the Sunday Times calls him a ‘conscience with a camera’. And watching McCullin talk about the dignity of the people he photographs, I’m not surprised they let him into the most unimaginably harrowing moments of their lives. You would. McCullin also shows us some of his photos taken closer to home, some of Brits in deckchairs by the beach: ‘Eccentrics, you can get them by the busload here. I love it.’ What a man.
    Location: Meta House (on Sothearos Blvd, just south of Sihanouk Blvd).

  • Nerd Night Special Edition Sept 8 @ CodeRed

    THE EVENT IS FREE but in order to manage high expected turnout, we’re asking you to register beforehand.

    A special edition of Nerd Night featuring speakers from the Phnom Penh community giving presentations in the Pecha Kucha format: 20 slides, 20 seconds on each. For Monday’s event, we’re partnering with Development Innovations, a USAID funded project to grow a community of innovators who tackle social challenges in Cambodia using technology powered ideas. Three speakers from the DI community will join the lineup, along with three speakers talking about less IT-focused topics (including, for instance, a choreographic analysis of Michael Jackson).

    Before Nerd Night, check out DI’s Innovations in Development Technology Expo Monday afternoon from 1:30 to 7 at their tech nerd high rise near Russian Market, featuring more than 20 civil society organizations and technology service providers sharing their latest inventions, as well as sessions with the Phnom Penh Google, Wikipedia, and other communities. Then come join the DI audience and the rest of the Nerd Night community as we take over one of Phnom Penh’s coolest kid clubs, CodeRED.

    Given the turnout we’re expecting at this event, we’re asking that you register for Nerd Night in advance on EventBrite. It’s still free! Just tell us you’re coming so we can reserve a spot for you.
