++Boiling Guts++

My guts are starting to boil…I can hear stranges noises coming from them, sounds like the bubbler of a fishtank. The rule of thumb here in Cambodia is: “if you see a bar of soap, use it”. But no mater how careful you are, you’re bound to pick up some kind of bug, and I’ve […]

Lukewarm Coffee

On the moto, as I rode to work this morning to teach the officer from the Minister of economics, swerving through traffic to avoid the Landcruisers which are driven with impugnity by former Khmer Rouge bigwigs…I noticed on the power line up ahead, a bushy tailed squirrel prancing across the busy road far overhead. I […]

Reviewing the Rough Cut of Susan Hero

Just received the rough cut of Susan Hero, via poste restante, at the Phnom Penh post office. So far, so good: a little long and the pacing needs to be tightened, but the editor, Giacomo Ambrosini, has put in a lot of effort to make this the best cut yet–have’t watched it all though (very […]

Lovely Ladies Picking Their Noses…

Everyone picks their nose in Cambodia; if you don’t when you arrive, you will gladly adopt the habit. You’ll soon find yourself probing a nostril with a gentle, wayward backhanded gesture, as naturally as Samba the elephant tosses a bucket of husk-filled turds as he passes by on Sisowith Quay, back home afgter a day […]

Tired–but it’s Good Kind of Tired

Still waiting to hear about the hilltribe documentary; in the meantime, the villagersa re being harassed by the local police and Cambodian government. Susan Hero, our New Mexico road movie, seems to be on hold due to unsolvabel equipment problems. Need more cash, and it’s slow to generate… Thus, an appeal to any readers who […]

Beef Trip with Cheese Fish

Just thought I’d add this while I remembered: ***”BEEF-TRIP WITH CHEESE FISH”*** …it was listed in the menu the other day up in Ratanakiri. Showed the hilltribe short demo tonight to the NGO folks; they seem positive and some figures were discussed (though no formal offer or green light to start shooting, etc). Could conceivable […]

I’m a WINNER!!!!!

Can’t believe my luck these days; things seem to be DEFINITELY turning around! For example, I’m now down here at the Tuol Sleng Internet cafe, near the infamous former Tuol Sleng prison S21 [now a museum to the Cambodian Holocaust], where the Khmer Rouge held and tortured thousands of innocent men, women, and children. I’m […]

Fat Lizards Hang from the Ceiling in the Gobbling Nook of Insect Dreams

Today, down time on all media sides as G (back in NYC) figgers out how to get the hard drives running again to tweak the cut–again–of Susan Hero. Current approach is to have him cut a 100 minute version, which will cause, I hope, a tighter, leaner cut. And the ultimate goal is to make […]

Back from shooting Video in a Hilltribe Village

Just flew back from Ratanakiri (and boy are my arms tired…wa, wa, wa). Went up there to expolore some doc ideas and meet with some NGO folks who are eyeing a potential doc about land alienation in the region (land grabbing: stealing land from the natives, it’s rampant). Well, one thing led to another and […]
