Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten:
Cambodia’s Lost Rock And Roll
Director John Pirozzi (2014, 107 mins)
Screening 13:00 and 16:15
Through the eyes, words and songs of its popular music stars of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock And Roll examines and unravels Cambodia’s tragic past.
Combining interviews with surviving musicians and never-before-seen archival material and rare songs, the film tracks the winding course of Cambodian music as it morphs into a unique style of rock and roll. A vibrant musical culture that was nearly lost forever under the brutal Khmer Rouge regime is revived and celebrated.

The Secret World of Foley takes us on a journey into the little known world of Foley artists, who bring films to life by adding sound effects in post-production. We follow a multi-award winning two person team of Foley artists and watch as they work together to bring to life a film about one morning in the life of a fishing village on the English coast.
