Sleepwalking Through The Mekong
Sleepwalking Through The Mekong (www.sleepwalkingthroughthemeking.com <http://t.ymlp143.com/ysaiauhhaoahyhakamqqm/click.php> ) chronicles the journey taken by Los Angeles based Khmer rock band Dengue Fever (www.myspace.com/denguefevermusic <http://t.ymlp143.com/yuatauhhaaahyhaoamqqm/click.php> ) to lead singer Chhom Nimol's native Cambodia during the 2005 Water Festival. The band's performances there marked the first time a Western band had performed classic 1960s and `70s Cambodian rock `n' roll in the country where it was created and nearly erased from existence by the brutal Pol Pot regime. More than a rockumentary, the film serves up a portrait of modern Cambodia as the band tours through Phnom Penh and beyond, crossing a great cultural chasm with the same spirit of Cambodia's original rock pioneers. read more The film has screened at a diverse number of festivals and museums including The Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival, The Hawaiian International Film Festival, Roskilde Festival, The Istanbul Museum of Fine Art and the Museum of Fine Art in Boston.
