Dir. John Pirozzi, US, 2014, 107 min.

Rock and roll in Cambodia flourished with go-go bands, girl groups, and psychedelic crooners, until the Khmer Rouge rose to power in 1975 and outlawed Western-style music. This documentary pays homage to the musicians whose rebellion and creativity cost them their lives, and tells their stories through those who survived.
