Cambodia is a land of broken dreams. There is no more cinema, no more theatre, no more playhouses. The traditional performing arts are becoming extinct, wiped out by television. But there are still artists. Trustees of a tradition which they cannot hand down for lack of institutions, financial backing and places to perform, they are doomed to live in poverty or else perform «ethnic entertainments» for tourists. «The idea at the heart of this film is to gather a group of actors around a project that exemplifies the reality we live in: something inside us dignity, identity is rotting to shreds. We are in the process of losing our memory. Cambodia is a land of broken dreams. There is no more theatre, no more playhouses.» (Rithy Panh)
