‘THE MAN WHO BUILT CAMBODIA’ @ Festival Zone
Dec 7 @ 8:00 pm

‘The Man Who Built Cambodia’  / Festival Zone

8.00pm / Siem Reap Public Premiere

  • Q&A with Director Christopher Rompré
  • Special performance by Cambodian singer Srey Pov

Join us for the highly anticipated Siem Reap public premier of THE MAN WHO BUILT CAMBODIA‘ by director Christopher Rompré which focuses on the amazing story of Vann Molyvann, an architect whose iconic buildings defined Cambodia.

The film explores the life of Vann Molyvann, an architect whose work came to represent a new identity for a country emerging from independence, and whose incredible story encompasses Cambodia’s turbulent journey as a modern nation. In Cambodia’s post-independence period, Molyvann was at the centre of a renaissance, developing a distinctive architectural style, New Khmer Architecture, that completely changed the face of Cambodia.

But in 1970, at his creative peak, Cambodia’s political landscape disintegrates, forcing him to flee as the Khmer Rouge plunges the country into genocide and civil war. Finally returning in the 1990s, Molyvann finds a different country than the one he left. He’s marginalized from public life and many of his works are destroyed or neglected.

Today, like many countries is Asia, Cambodia is developing rapidly and unevenly.

Now nearly 90, the film follows Vann Molyvann as he reflects on the country he’s put so much of himself into.

Narrated by Academy Award™ nominee Matt Dillon, at the heart of THE MAN WHO BUILT CAMBODIA is Vann Molyvann’s lifelong engagement with the identity of the Khmer people, and his attempt to create a unique architectural style that gives modern expression to that identity.

AFTERNOON SESSIONS [‘The End of Mirage’ by Zalmai] [Magnum Foundation] @ The Brothers
Dec 8 @ 2:00 pm

Afternoon Sessions / The Brothers 

2.00pm / ‘The End of Mirage’

Afghan-Swiss photographer Zalmai speaks about his experiences photographing the refugee crisis in Europe.

Photographer Zalmaï is an Afghan political refugee, exiled to Switzerland. When he talks about his work, it is closely linked to his own experiences.

“I was 15, I didn’t know the word ‘refugee’. I didn’t know what a border was. I had hardly ever left Kabul and my sheltered life there. The first time I was away from home without my parents was this harrowing journey across the mountains. On the path, we stuck together, creating ties with others, as if to create some sort of surrogate family”. Because, “the worst nightmare, would be to find yourself alone. When these people find someone along the way who speaks their language, they are overjoyed!”

While getting to know each other, Zalmaï translated the words of Armin who is from Kashan, Iran. Armin has been in Switzerland for seven months and is talking about the boat destined for Greece and the terrifying journey that he overcame thanks to the protection of his older brother. “That’s just like me”, Zalmai says, troubled. “The difference is that, in the 80s, Afghan refugees were heroes, welcomed with open arms.”

2.00pm / Magnum Foundation 

Join Alexis Lambrou, programme coordinator of Magnum Foundation for a special presentation about the organisation and its What Works project.

partner-squares-48While many of the projects we support through Magnum Foundation’s programming arise from the journalistic instinct to expose and interrogate social injustices, we believe that rigorous explorations of positive responses to social problems are equally essential. In this current climate of increased sectarian conflict and rampant xenophobia, it is imperative to point to instances of people coming together. Critical perspectives on what works locally, in communities around the world, offer points of access for tackling issues of global relevance.

The Magnum Foundation What Works project brings together nine photographers from Iran, Ukraine, Slovenia, Syria, India, Ecuador, China, and the Philippines to explore tolerance through rigorous and creative visual narratives. Collectively, the projects address bridge-building amongst groups that might otherwise be in conflict.

What Works is a collective project created by members of Magnum Foundation’s network of regional photographers who have received training through our Photography and Human Rights Program.

Showcase of ‘Phnom Penh, A City By Night’, in the presence of Chantal Stoman and the workshop participants.

Chantal Stoman’s work focuses on the humanity hidden in the heart of major cities. She continued her project LOST HIGHWAY with VIEWS, in which we find ‘Phnom Penh, A City By Night’. Chantal Stoman, invited by the French Institute in Phnom Penh to become an artist in residence worked with local emerging photographers and students of Studio Images on the ‘Phnom Penh, A City By Night’ workshop, with the aim of helping them to capture their home city by night and rediscover their environment.

Project realised through a residency at Studio Images, on invitation from the French Institute in Phnom Penh, and sponsored by Cambodia Airports.

The Bambu Stage Theatre Presents ‘SNAP!’
Join us for a journey through Cambodian history told via photography.

150 years ago, the very first photographs were taken of the temples of Angkor. We honour that age by creating a multimedia presentation that leads you through the country’s photographic history with live music, special effects and shorts from old movies.

Presented by local restaurateur and keen historian Seng Leng, SNAP! is an emotional experience as you see and hear the stories of royalty, temples, bicycles and elephants, parties and war and personal memories unique to Cambodia.

Leng has spent months sifting through photographic libraries, spending time at the Wat Damnak Centre for Khmer Studies and asking friends who have their own collections to map the larger arc of Cambodia’s modern history through the photographer’s lens.

Working with Bambu Stage, he has assembled a montage of images and short archival film clips to group them into themes to trace Cambodia’s history from colonialism to independence, the Khmer Rouge struggles and finally, to an era of peace.

2.oopm / RUOM Hangout

RUOM is a collective of journalists specializing in social reportage throughout Asia. Exploring different forms of collective storytelling, Ruom’s members have been working on several long-term projects that have been published globally. Ruom Hangout is a chance for us to share our work, and for those attending the meet to share theirs. Together we can exchange ideas, give feedback, and ask each other questions about the work presented, much like we do in the collective. For Ruom, it has always been helpful to hear the ideas of our colleagues and collectively discuss together, and we are excited to open this up to a larger forum.

Presenters:

  • Sandra Hoyn will show her project “Jenny’s soul” – about the unusual relationship between a man and his silicone doll
  • Yan Cong will talk about her long term project about Cambodian brides trafficked to China
  • Gareth Bright will showcase his work from nearly 3 years exploring the Mekong from Sea to Source. He will discuss the importance of taking risks to start projects, and why long-term photo series are an important shift away from traditional hard news photography.
  • Nicolas Axelrod (RUOM) is presenting images from his last year living in Thailand, he will discuss the need to shoot personal projects and the importance of photography as a craft.
  • Thomas Cristofoletti (RUOM) will talk about his ongoing project about unconventional religious practices.
  • Jes Aznar will present his curation of Filipino photographers’ work on Rodrigo Duterte’s ongoing war on drugs, which has claimed thousands of lives since he took office. With images from Raffy Lerma, Hannah Reyes Morales, Linus Escandor, Ezra Acayan, Czar Dancel, Dondi Tawatao, Alyx Arumpac, Alecs Ongcal, Jay Ganzon, Dante Dionisia, Vincent Go and Carlo Gabuco
