2017 One Book Film Festival 'Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock & Roll'

The San Diego Central Library proudly presents a diverse slate of international film screenings that speak to the themes of peacemaking, migration, resilience and reconciliation featured in the One Book San Diego 2017 selection "The Sandcastle Girls" by New York Times bestselling novelist Chris Bohjalian.

Introductions and post screening dialogue with the audience led by SDSU Professor and KPBS blogger Rebecca Romani.

The screenings take place Tuesdays, Oct. - Nov. 2017 at 6:30 p.m. in Neil Morgan Auditorium at Central Library. (619) 236-5817

"Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock & Roll" will screen Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 6:30–8:30 p.m.

This film examines Cambodia's recent history through its rock music of the 1960s and 1970s, culminating in the genocidal Khmer Rouge's dismantling of the society and murder of two million of its citizens. Combining interviews of surviving rockers with never-before-seen archival material and rare songs, this film tracks the twists and turns of Cambodian music as it morphs into rock and roll, blossoms, and is nearly destroyed along with the rest of the country. Directed by John Pirozzi and Andrew Pope, 95 minutes, USA/Cambodia.
