Part 1 of 3.
Cinema Super 8: Southeast Asia was shot on location during a whirlwind two week tour of Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand in 2010. Part 1 features footage shot in Phnom Penh during the annual Water Festival, when everyone from all around the country converges on the capital for the week. The military sets up a number of "Checkpoints" on all major roads going into the city which function as bribe stations, and you can see our bus driver paying the bribes in a short sequence in this film. I didn't make it completely obvious I was filming.
Also in this part is a visit to Tuol Sleng, the notorious S-21 prison where the Pol Pot regime murdered tens of thousands of political prisoners. It was a harrowing visit, you can almost feel the ghosts there. I placed a Khmer buddhist chant as the soundtrack.
Music by order of appearance:
Richard H. Kirk - "Worldwar Three"
LA Vampires Goes Ital - "Streetwise"
Sublime Frequencies - Various radio clips
Khmer Monks - Dharma Chant
