Meta-House End-of-year Doings

Dear All!

With all the best wishes for a successful, happy and healthy 2008
we’d like to invite you for the exhibition opening

MY PLACE OF SILENCE
with Swiss photographer Beat Presser
This Sunday, December 30, from 6PM

Beat Presser became famous due to his close cooperation with German actor Klaus Kinski and movie director Werner Herzog (“Fitzcarraldo”). His exhibition “Oasis of Silence” is currently on display in the National Museum Phnom Penh. At Meta House Presser is exhibiting the results of his workshop “My place of Silence” with Cambodian and foreign photographers.

To Presser “Phnom Penh seems to be one of the noisiest and busiest cities in South East Asia”. He asked the workshop participants to search for silent places in Phnom Penh. Where do they find their retreat? See the works of Vandy Rattana, Heng Ravuth, Chean Long, Keo Chanmao, Virginie Noel, Andrew Jamieson, Marija de Wijn amm.

This Friday/Saturday don’t miss the highly recommended documentaries:

* PHNOM PENH DOC FEST: FRI, 28/12, 7PM
EDGE CITY (The Story of the Merry Pranksters)Well-researched documentary by German filmmakers Gregor Wille and Michael Reuter about Ken Kesey, known as author of ‘One flew over the cuckoo’s nest”. He hired him out as a guinea pig for military drug experiments and set of with a group of friends, known as the “Merry Pranksters”, in a school bus on a cross country tour across the USA. (97 min, 2007)

* FOCUS CAMBODIA: SAT, 29/12, 7PM
NICE HAT!Brilliant Doc by David Brisbin/CAN: What does it mean when the royal crown has gone missing, when a single scarf serves both torture and joy, when peasant palm hats speak of ethnic division, when a cloth cap from another country defines a revolution, or when a dancer’s headdress survives 800 years? These are among the hats that frame the Cambodian face, and offer an intimate window on how the Khmer have withstood the worst and embodied the best of humanity for a thousand years. (more infos:
