Storyline

Through the eyes, words, and songs of its popular music stars of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, 'Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock & Roll' examines and unravels Cambodia's tragic past, culminating in the genocidal Khmer Rouge's dismantling of the society and murder of two million of its citizens. Combining interviews of the surviving Cambodian musicians themselves (a total of 150 hours of interviews were filmed) with never-before-seen archival material and rare songs, this documentary 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.

A clever lens to view such a tragic time through.
5 January 2019 | by worldwidewearSee all my reviews

My ex wife is khmer so this history is my kids' history. They're too young right now to be interested but Im always on the lookout for ways to engage them in their heritage. This movie is such a clever lens through which to show the time it chronicles, particularly when the importance of music to khmer culture is so paramount.

One of the most striking/shocking features of this documentary is the complete shift in the lyrics as music is appropriated as a tool for war.

Quite a long watch and I gave it a nine because it takes just a bit long to get to the 70s.
