List of 14 best videos made in Cambodia. Some of them will make you know Cambodia better, some you can show to your children, some make you want to come to Cambodia.
Vina has asked a question from the previous post Cambodia Appears Again On Big Screen Transformers 3:
What have turned filmmakers to be so interested in Cambodia? Ancient Temples? Costs?
I think there are many things that make people want to make film in Cambodia, mainly because Cambodia is a wonder land and nice country people.
To continue our mission, I have a list of 14 Videos that various professorial and non-professional filmmakers have made in Cambodia. I know there are some others videos that I not yet watch. If you have video to recommend, you can contact me and we can do a new list!
Eating Spider in Cambodia
There are many video of eating spider in Cambodia but this video is the best I found. It will show you at the beginning how they catch the spiders and how to cook them. You will not believe your eyes!
Short Stack – Heartbreak Made Me A Killer
I found no trace to explain why Short Stack came to Cambodia to make this video clip. But the clip was awesome. It shot a lot of scenes in Kep and Kampot.
My Trip to Cambodia
The filming process is very minimalist but full of art in mind. There are many scenes shot on the Tonele Sap Lake.
Cambodian Taxi Driver
I have made full interview with the filmmaker Takeyoshi Fukuda last May 2010. I love his work! Here below is a short version of the Cambodian Raxu Driver.
Cambodia Space Launch – 2010
This is the first video that provide image of Cambodia from the space. This is not a real spaceship but at least they have launch a balloon with Camera and GPS. You can learn more about Cambodia Launched First Spaceship.
Dogora:Ouvrons les yeux
The Video made in 2004 by a French director Patrice Leconte. There’s no dialogue in the film, only images and music.
It is a work from 2 weeks trip in Cambodia. It shows Cambodia daily life with a slow emotion. You will enjoy this video for sure.
Jungle Bound – Angkor Cambodia 1930s
This is a very rare video that I found. It show the daily life of Cambodian people in 1930a. You will see the Khmer Boxing (Pradal Serey) in front of Angkor Wat temple.
A French film made in Cambodia about child adopt. I found there are many interesting scenes of Phnom Penh under the rain. They are beautiful.
Same Same But Different
The film is good, what make me a bit uncomfortable to watch is that they use Thai girl to play the role of Cambodian. It is inspired by a true story.
S21 The Khmer Rouge Killing Machine
It is a documentary by Rithy Panh. The filming process is difficult. There are a lot of disturbing scenes in the film but if you want to learn the true about S21, this is a must-see film.
Enemies Of The People
This is another documentary about how killing happened in Cambodia. Started from the personal idea of Thet Sambath, a Cambodian journalist who wanted to find the true why there’s killing in Khmer Rouge regime. He spent his own money to go to meet Nou Chea, Brother Number Two.
4 Rivers Floating Eco-Lodge, Tatai, Cambodia
This video will bring you to the new Eco resort in Koh Kong, Cambodia. You will ask your friends to come to Cambodia after watching this.
The film made by French director Jean-Jacques Annaud, told a story of two tigers set in Cambodian colonial period. A warming and good film for your children.
