Golden Slumbers
Cambodia, 2012, 96 minutes, SD
Golden Slumbers Synopsis

Over three million Cambodians died in the genocide between 1975 and 1979. The Khmer Rouge’s reign of terror also decimated a homegrown film industry that had flourished since 1960: movie theaters were bombed, film prints were destroyed and artists were executed.


In Golden Slumbers, French-Cambodian filmmaker Davy Chou mourns this loss of lives and culture, but balances the somber material with a playfulness that honors the lush melodramas and mythic adventures of the glory years.

A heartrending reality of life after war. Its destruction of what seemed to be a flourishing culture. This film tackles and depicts how the film industry of Cambodia has been dilapidated by the Khmer Rouge's reign. A documentary well carried out with its explicit topic and interviews that shines a light to the elusive life that was once sheltered by tyrants, murder and death. Their voices must be heard and known to the public, this documentary will clearly elicit wonder to the fallen industry and if nothing more, will help these people get back where they used to belong.
