Last Night I Saw You Smiling
The White Building in Phnom Penh, an iconic apartment block originally built in 1963, emptied by the Khmer Rouge, and subsequently the centre of a thriving artistic community, has been sold to Japanese developers and is scheduled for demolition. Filmmaker Kavich Neang - himself born and raised in the building - returns to interview fellow residents as they pack up their belongings and prepare for eviction. Neang interweaves their reflections and reminiscences with the turbulent national history to which the structure has borne witness, invoking ghosts of the past that reside within the building’s walls.
Co-presented with Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival
Kavich Neang | Cambodia, France | 2019 | 75m
