Mount Saint Vincent Encourages Students to View Documentary on Cambodia’s “Lost Rock and Roll”

4/20/2015

Riverdale, N.Y. – The College of Mount Saint Vincent has made it a little easier for students to attend screenings of the documentary film, Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll, on Wednesday, April 22 and Thursday, April 23 at 5:20 p.m. at the Film Forum in the West Village, New York City by giving away 100 tickets.

Forty years after the genocide in Cambodia, the documentary commemorates the victims and presents the untold story of how their music survived.

Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll tells the story of modern Cambodia through the lens of popular music,” said LinDa Saphan, Assistant Professor of Sociology, who has associate producer’s credit on the film. “Students who study history courses, genocide studies, and popular culture will be dazzled by the rare footage and amazing music. International studies students will be fascinated to learn about American foreign policies in Southeast Asia, and I’m sure that all will enjoy watching a film in English, French, and Khmer with English subtitles.”

The Office of Student Life purchased the tickets to give away to students on a first-come-first-serve basis to encourage attendance at this culturally and educationally important film.

For more information, please contact LinDa Saphan at (718) 405-3707 or linda.saphan@mountsaintvincent.edu.
