Limited Capacity seats available

Thursday, April 16th at 7:00 pm
During the Vietnam War, Cambodian musicians crafted a sound from the various rock music styles sweeping America, England and France adding in unique melodies and hypnotic rhythms of their traditional music. Then on April 17, 1975, the Khmer Rouge began wiping out all traces of modernity and Western influence. Intellectuals, artists and musicians were specifically and systematically targeted and eliminated. Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten provides a new perspective on a country, usually associated only with war and genocide.

PLAYING WITH:
Uncle Essy - Niyaz Saghari // Iran // 22 min - A touching portrait of the oldest record stallholder in Tehran’s largest bazaar, Uncle Essy became a well-known musical source, and an inspiration to young people in Iran after the revolution. Emotional interviews at his stall reveal deep ties to a vast and diverse music collection that he lovingly shared with others.
