This month at Meta House

The Meta House, on Street 264 near Wat Botum, has some interesting events lined up for this month. Unfortunately, I've booked a two-week trip to Laos in mid-month so I will miss a few of them but nonetheless, that shouldn't stop you from attending. Director Greg Cahill will present his 25-minute film The Golden Voice on Saturday 14th at 7pm. Its a peek into the life of Cambodia's best loved singer Ros Sereysothea. The following week, Saturday 21st, Rithy Panh's movie One Evening After the War will be shown and on Friday 27th, its an evening of 4 John Pilger documentaries including Year Zero: The Silent Death of Cambodia, alongwith films on Vietnam and East Timor. From 24 June an exhibition of his paintings by Cambodian artist Svay Ken will open - the 75 year old is still going strong today. There's lots of other stuff taking place as well, but the above, and a documentary on the punk band The Clash on the 1oth, were the ones that caught my eye.
