DON’T THINK I’VE FORGOTTEN: CAMBODIA’S LOST ROCK AND ROLL tracks the twists and turns of Cambodian music in the 1950s and 1960s as it morphs into rock and roll, blossoms, and is nearly destroyed along with the rest of the country in the mid-1970s. 

Director John Pirozzi spent over a decade piecing together this documentary from rare footage and recordings, and conducted interviews with the few surviving Cambodian rock musicians from the era before Pol Pot.

This screening was organized by the Center for Southeast Asian Studies and is co-sponsored by WCBN; the Department of Screen Arts and Cultures; the School of Music, Theatre & Dance; and the Center for World Performance Studies.
