40 years ago: April 17, 1975, Phnom Penh fell to the Khmer Rouge and Cambodian rock and roll was no more. Its star musicians were targeted and killed, record collections were destroyed, clubs were closed, and Western-style music-making, dancing, and clothes were outlawed. The deaths of approximately two million Cambodians and the horrors of the Killing Fields have been well-documented; add to this John Pirozzi’s fascinating tale of Cambodia’s vibrant pop music scene, beginning in the 1950s and ‘60s, influenced by France’s Johnny Hallyday and Britain’s Cliff Richard and the Shadows. The filmmaker has assembled rare archival footage, punctuating it with telling interviews with the few surviving musicians. Cambodian culture has long been synonymous with a love for the arts. Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll pays homage to the country’s rock legends who paid for their creativity with their lives.
Cambodia's Neoliberal Order: Violence, Authoritarianism, and the Contestation of Public Space

Neoliberal economics have emerged in the post-Cold War era as the predominant ideological tenet applied to the development of countries in the global south. For much of the global south, however, the promise that markets will bring increased standards of living and emancipation from tyranny has been an empty one. Instead, neoliberalisation has increased the gap between rich and poor and unleashed a firestorm of social ills.

Lawyer Jacques Vergès has spent his life defending the indefensible. The son of a French father and a Vietnamese mother, he forged his reputation pleading for the darling of the Algerian liberation movement, Djamila Bouhired (whom he would eventually marry). However, he is now best known as counsel for such 20th-century monsters as Klaus Barbie - the Nazi known as the "Butcher of Lyon" - and notorious terrorist Carlos the Jackal. Yet, as director Barbet Schroeder reveals in this compelling documentary, Vergès isn't simply a maverick with an addiction to contentious cases. He accepts briefs that he believes will help him unveil hypocrisy at the heart of French society. Schroeder fails to press Vergès on his views on Israel and his relationship with Cambodia's murderous dictator Pol Pot, but few film-makers have exposed global political reality quite so persuasively. (Radio Times Review). In many respects a companion piece to Marcel Ophuls 'Hotel Terminus - the Life and Times of Klaus Barbie', Schroeder's film does not actually dwell over much on the Barbie trial for reasons he explains in the interview in Part 2. Main film has French, German and English soundtrack with merged English subtitles. Interview segment is in English, without subtitles.
