Another Day / Ep#3: Bopha’s Body (2011)

2011 / HD Video / 10 min / Short Narrative

I would love to see more independent Cambodian Neo-Realist films, short or long. I would love to see young Khmer filmmakers tell their real feelings and portray real landscapes of their own lives. I think their true emotions will be beautiful and universal. So if you make one, share it with us. This is a love letter to young Khmer filmmakers. — Masahiro Sugano, filmmaker
