Bangsokol: A requiem for Cambodia
Directed by Rithy Panh and Him Sophy, 2019, 65min, Original version
An extraordinary new composition fusing music, voice, movement, and visuals. It is the first major symphonic work that addresses the traumas of the late 1970s in Cambodia, and the first collaboration between contemporaries Rithy Panh and Him Sophy, both survivors of the Khmer Rouge and now at the forefront of Cambodia’s cultural renaissance.
