Dear friends,

Seckon is having a great time here.  He says,

In London, I fell into Henry Moore and felt weak in the presence of his work.  England is still the emperor!  And I am travelling a few days to see art, and people, and life here, I learn a lot.  Especially I really am interested in the artist one, make me uh shocked, (henry moore).  I feel he stays in the god village!  and make me like drunk in my eyes.  I dont know how I am but I remind myself like me in england.

The response has been great to his work.  The Private View is Tuesday night, six collages have pre-sold and seven paintings are reserved.  BBC radio are interviewing him, and BBC TV are asking for an interview also.. so you might be seeing him on BBC world soon too!

The Private View (opening) is Tuesday night, and then Thursday night is the artist talk, where Seckon will be ‘in conversation with Sara Raza’, from the Tate Modern.

Sorry just a short word

Kindest regards

FRI, 26/03, 7 PM
In an increasingly globalized world, maintaining an indigenous identity in
the media is a challenge. How can communities promote indigenous voices and
forms of knowledge? What do you think functioning indigenous media should
look like, and how best can this be achieved? Two new documentaries, THE
LIZARD’S TAIL and THE TRECH’S NEST by Inazio Zurutuza feature short stories
from ethnic minority groups in Cambodia. The Spanish filmmaker shows
perceptions of disaster risk and threats to traditional livelihoods, driven
by natural and man-made hazards. The filmmaker will be present for a Q&A,
followed by community media productions from Mondulkiri and Rattanakiri.

SAT, 27/03, 7 PM
In its monthly presentation of student films, the Department of Media and
Communication (DMC) at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) will focus
on everyday life in Cambodia. The short documentaries – that were made
during classes and workshops at the only journalism workshop in the
country – show what is behind things that you might observe daily without
paying much attention to them. Followed by a Q&A with some of the student
directors. Meta House shows a selection of the best films by DMC students
every last Saturday of the month. DVDs of select student productions will be
on sale tonight (Khmer with English subtitles).

SUN, 28/03, 7 PM
An intimate portrait of the teacher-student relationship in Khmer classical
dance, THE TENTH DANCER, directed by Sally Ingleton (1992, 55mins) is a film
about loss and retrieval, and disruption and continuity. Em Theay, renowned
former palace singer and dancer and her dance student Pen Sok Chea are both
survivors of the Khmer Rouge. This Australian documentary traces their
journey as they try to rebuild their lives and their art in Cambodia
following the genocide that left perhaps more than 80 percent of their
artistic colleagues dead. This presentation is part of our dance film series
curated by Khmer Arts Academy, based in Takhmao.
