Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Film “Cirque du Cambodia”, due for release 2018.

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sun Jul 02, 2017 12:48 pm

A film titled “Cirque du Cambodia”, which charts the paths of two star performing graduates of Siem Reap’s famed Phare Circus, is slated for release in early 2018, according to the director Joel Gershon.

Gershon, who lived in Bangkok for 12 years, is now based in New York working on the editing and hoping to forge partnerships to secure “real distribution” in the US and Canada, where much of the film is set.
“I would like to first show this on the big screen and have a festival run,” he said. “And then I’d love to see this on TV and make it streamable.”

The film has been long in the making as Gershon originally conceived the idea after seeing a performance of the circus in its original home in Battambang in 2011.

He finally decided on documenting the international adventures of two young performers, Sopha Nem and Dina Sok, as they travelled from Cambodia to Canada and other countries following their circus dreams...

I don't find the circus interesting, always skipped it when passing through Battambang.
I do watch the Tonle Sap documentaries, videos, and anything I can find on it. And a variety of other Cambodia movies and videos that I'll watch more than 1 time.
Different interests for different viewers but I won't watch a circus movie.
