They state: "Phnom Penh is in a stage of intense development. As the country stabilizes, post-war, people are developing the confidence to build, to invest, to trade, and to hope for a much better future." (Until April 22, 2009)  Thanks to the Phnom Penh Post for printing the catalogue for this exhibition - see also the attached postcard. Pick up your copy at the opening, pls. All artworks are for sale.  Please also note that we have new opening hours for our gallery: From Wednesday, April 1, we are open from 2PM until 10PM – Monday is closed.   ++++  Here is our film programme for this week:  WED, 01/04, 7 PM THE TRIAL HAS BEGUN Finally Cambodia puts the Khmer Rouge on trial. First defendant is "Comrade Duch". UK journalist/filmmaker Tom Fawthrop and Helen Jarvis have written the book "Getting Away With Genocide: Cambodia's Long Struggle Against the Khmer Rouge". Tonite Tom Fawthrop presents his rare documentary "CAMBODIA 1989" and other films focusing on the KR legacy.   THUR, 02/04, 7 PM VIVA CUBA! Following this February's Cuban Film Festival @ Meta we are pleased to re-screen Tom Fawthrop's documentary SWIMMINING AGAINST THE TIDE (2007, 45min) – a timely reminder of what public health is meant to be all about. Part of tonite's program is the groundbreaking documentary WITH OR WITHOUT FIDEL, that features Cuba's leading politicians, intellectuals and dissidents, who debate the future direction of the island's 48 year-old revolution....  FRI, 03/04, 7 PM GOMORRA    Director Matteo Garrone gives a rough portrait of the Camorra, Naples region's criminal network. Inspired by Roberto Saviano's book, the fascinating movie drives straight, and without mercy, toward the heart of the issue, where underdevelopment merges with marginalization, corruption with violence, and where hope seems to have handover to darkness. (Italy, 2008, 137 min.)  SAT, 04/04, 7 PM TERROR'S ADVOCATE  Powerful documentary by Barbet Schroeder on the controversial lawyer Jacques Vergès, who has defended Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie and super-terrorist Carlos "The Jackal". His latest case brings Vergès to Cambodia. (2007, 135min)  SUN, 05/04, 7 PM FOREST NIGHT (Part 1) The April Festival 2009 on Forests, People & Non-Timber-Forest-Products (NTFP) is held in Phnom Penh and Mondulkiri Province.

Films are followed by Q&A with producers/directors Amanda Bradley and Ridzki Sigit.     --  Psssst! Schon vom neuen GMX MultiMessenger gehört?

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

 cette edition 2009 du khmarnaval à été une reussite, un jolie cortége, une scene bien remplie, des kids en folie….

operation reussie, me voici de retour avec le plein d’energie et d’envies et juste à temps pour vous faire passer les derniers echos de ce khmarnaval qui à secoué kampong som….. et régalé la jeunesse….
à bien^tot….
this 2009 khmarnaval edition had been a big succés, a very nice corteggio,, a stage well filed, heavy happy kids…. and my nerves in powder…. that’s why following the recommandations ( they were looking more like orders…. ) of the doctor Krupett, i ‘ ve been send to the deep bush….  for resourcing, refreshing, reinstall….. so just to give a breack to the neuron …. far from any kind of urban activity where the river is mixed with the sky, where the spirit don’t wait the night to get out of the forest….
mission accomplished, there i’m back full of energy and wishes and just in time to share with you the last echos of this khmarnaval that did shake kampong som and enjoy the youth….
