View Trailer of “Cambodian Son” Here
Director Masahiro Sugano of Studio Revolt embarks on a special North American educational/promotional tour of “Cambodian Son,” his new feature documentary that follows the journey of an exiled American spoken word poet, Kosal Khiev, from the streets of Phnom Penh to the stages of London during the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
Issues Addressed in “CAMBODIAN SON”:
Kosal Khiev’s story featured in the film “CAMBODIAN SON” brings to light multiple, intersecting issues including immigration and deportation, incarceration, juvenile justice, art as integral to healing and full human development, and so much more. The film arrives at a time when Americans are in the midst of a fierce battle for humane immigration reform, and this documentary can be a vehicle to have deeper discussions, build consciousness about the experiences of immigrants from Asian America, and make connections between these experiences with other immigrant and refugee communities in the US.
Tour Dates: March 15 – May 5, 2014 (Screening schedule TBD)
“All I hope now is that you watch this film and walk away feeling something you never felt before about some people you never thought you would come to know. It is only through your tears and inspiration that we can begin to make an impact in this world that is cruel but always generous to those who persevere.”
— Masahiro Sugano, filmmaker
