Golden Age of Khmer Cinema party

The closing party of the Golden Reawakening exhibition, a presentation on the Golden Age of Cambodian Cinema in the 1960s and 1970s, was a steaming affair. There was a fashion show of 60s-style wear, film screenings, many speeches, and finally a rocking concert by V.O.B, a band dedicated to bringing back the sound of the period, when love ballads met grungy garage-punk guitars in Cambodia and led to a sound that has its fans all around the world these days.

People were encouraged to come in period dresses, and ended up dancing, dancing, dancing…
