Film Notes

NEW YORK THEATRICAL PREMIERE RUN!
(LE SOMMEIL D’OR)
During its Golden Age in the 1960s and early 70s, the Cambodian film industry produced hundreds of feature films – vibrant, energetic movies that incorporated drama, romance, fantasy, and, almost always, elaborate musical numbers and indelible songs – which drew large and devoted audiences. With the rise of the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime in the mid-70s, this cinematic legacy was nearly eradicated – the theaters forcibly closed, the majority of the films destroyed, the directors, writers, and actors largely imprisoned, exiled, or executed.

Davy Chou’s highly accomplished documentary, GOLDEN SLUMBERS, is hence an invaluable work of cultural excavation and preservation. Through clips from the handful of surviving films, audio recordings of their soundtracks, visits to some of the sites where the films were shot or exhibited, and above all, extended interviews with the filmmakers, producers, performers, and devoted cinephiles who together created and sustained Cambodian film culture during its Golden Age, Chou reconstructs this tragically but intriguingly lost world. Himself the grandson of one of the leading film producers of the time, Van Chann, Chou is no distanced observer, and GOLDEN SLUMBERS is a deeply committed chronicle of a chapter of film (and world) history that can only be directly apprehended in bits and pieces today, but that continues to exist in the memories and stories of its surviving creators and devotees.

“An elegantly assembled and deeply moving remembrance of Cambodian cinema. […] Inventively directed, immaculately lensed and making excellent use of archival soundtrack songs by legendary performers Sin Sisamouth and Ros Serey Sothea, the documentary is several impressive notches above standard-issue talking-head fare. The choice of material and manner in which the final images are presented is pure poetry.” –Richard Kuipers, VARIETY

Livia Bloom of Icarus Films will moderate a Q&A via Skype with director Davy Chou after the 6:45 screening on Tuesday, November 5!
