Double Bill with films by Cambodian and foreign filmmakers about the legacy of Khmer Rouge.
Three young Khmer directors (Triple S Productions) follow a Cambodian blogger, a priest and an orphanage director for their M.E.T.A. film school debut film THREE GENERATIONS (2009, 15min).
Walter Heynowski and Gerhard Scheumann are the best-known East-German documentarists. KAMPUCHEA: DEATH AND REBIRTH (1979, 90min) is the first film after KR. The scenes filmed during spring 1979 are part of history: Phnom Penh left to rampant nature, heaps of skulls and destroyed faces.
The reports from the survivors are moving and harrowing. You can watch it only at Meta House!
Where: Meta House – Cambodian German Cultural Center, #37 Sothearos Blvd. opposite of Buildbright / Phnom Penh centre
