Rebirth of the dance
Directed by Chey Vibol, 28 min, 1981, English version.
This documentary shows the renaissance of traditional dance from Cambodia in the early 1980s after a dark period of Khmer Rouge destroyed the country. A former director of the National School of Dance, Chea Samy, began her work to create a dance class. The costumes, ornaments for ballet, traditional marriage, and other multiple parties with different rhythmic musical styles were made for dancing.
