RAM Film Talk｜Red and Gold — Cambodian Documentary Film
Aug 22, 2020 Saturday 19:00 - 21:30
The history of Cambodian films is only slightly longer than the history of the Khmer Rouge. Cambodian films possess unique quality - fascinating, dreamy, and exotic. It is just like the intermediateness that comes from Cambodia’s central geolocation in Southeast Asia, and the uniqueness and concealment of Angkor Wat.
Initiated in 2020, CURTAIN is a long term research project, which will be articulated through a series of exhibition formats, discursive platforms and cross-institutional collaborations spanning a three-year period.
RAM is pleased to announce the opening of RAM Station - the new location for not only the RAM Shop and reading room, but also for the resumption of RAM’s public education programmes. Events such as film discussions, lectures, workshops, and book lists will be presented at RAM Station, making it a central space for the museum’s interaction with the outside world during its temporary closure.
