The International Film Series (IFS) and Asia Week partner to present:

"Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock and Roll"

Through the eyes, words and songs of its popular music stars of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, this acclaimed documentary examines and unravels Cambodia's tragic past. Combining interviews with surviving musicians and never-before-seen archival material and rare songs, the film tracks the winding course of Cambodian music as it morphs into a unique style of rock and roll. A vibrant musical culture that was nearly lost forever under the brutal Khmer Rouge regime is revived and celebrated.
