Asia Society Texas Center says
Cambodia’s golden age of pop thrived through the 1960s and 1970s, when joy and life flowed from the capital to the countryside through soul, funk, and rock ‘n’ roll. It all came to a halt when Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge marched on the capital of Phnom Penh in 1975.

Hailed as “heart-stirring” (The New York Times) and “a fervent cry for the power of music” (Washington Post), Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten provides a fresh perspective on the devastating loss of Cambodia’s music stars.

Immediately following the screening, Chhom Nimol and Zac Holtzman — of Cambodian-American band Dengue Fever — will perform a short intimate set paying tribute to the film’s music.
