The NETFLIX feature film made in Cambodia last year by Angelina Jolie is going to Première in Siem Reap on Feb 18. 2017. FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER will later this year show on Netflix. I can finally see some use of my 2-weeks work on this shoot. Here is a first story in The Guardian.
The Marc Forster feature film on which I shoot the Stills last year is slowing getting a life… After showing a première at the Toronto Festival, it look like it will open in 1.000’s of theatres early in 2017. So far only one picture is always being use! And you can see more of my pictures on the Facebook link
And on early October 2016, I had the chance to participate at another event with exhibition in KL. Organised by the Gallery Valette, the 10-day event centered of the work of five photographers (myself, Coskun Aral from Turkey, Isa Touma from Aleppo/Syria, Rahman Roslan from Malaysia and Sergey Ponomarev from Russia); as well the now famed picture from Nilüfer Demir of Turkey was exhibited. The event comprised talks at he exhibition with different groups including several international schools, radio interview and the book signing. My contribution to th event was with my work on the Cambodian refugee crisis of 1979-1980’s. The book was produced by Visioncy Ltd and includes our pictures with words from Dr Marina Mahathir, Edgar Morin and Dr Murat Erdogan. With a partnering from UNHCR. The show will be replicate in other countries including Turkey and Germany at later dates. See exodus-dejavu.com for updates, as well on the FB page.
During September 2106, I had a show of 35 images of my take on Cambodia’s historical moments from 1975-1982.
Thanks to the great co-ordination of long time friend and colleague Robin Moyer, The venerable Foreign Correspondent Club of Hong Kong pt my historical images on their walls for a the full month of September 2016. It has been a great pleasure to travel again to Hong Kong and meet old friends from the photography world in particular as I have been a frequent traveler to Hong Kong since 1980! Since then I never miss to visit the FCC, one of the few established reporter den on this planet from the time of the of mid-20th century wars in Asia.
Now coming any week, the movie which was shot as “The Coup” has now a release title: “No Escape”… Here is the poster (as of now!) using my photographs… I’ll soon post a selection of images taken during the shooting. And here is the official trailer!
On 24th of April 2015, with the launch of the book The Fall of Phnom Penh, the Soy Sauce Factory gallery put up an exhibition. Here is a few images of the amazing crowd who cam to my opening.
