Cambodian rock documentary

I rarely comment other peoples work in my blog but this is something worth mentioning. They need your help and this is something I truly want to happen.

The time has come to finish our documentary film: Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock And Roll. Our goal is to finish the film this fall. Because so much visual material was destroyed by the Khmer Rouge we are working extra hard in creating ways to illustrate this incredible music.
The singer Ros Serey Sothea began as a poor farm girl from the countryside. Because of her amazing voice she soon found herself to be the biggest female singing star in the country. Unfortunately she didn’t survive the Khmer Rouge era. No footage of her performing is known to have survived either. We plan to make an animated sequence of Ros Serey Sothea performing. It would help bring her back to life on screen.
We’ve arranged to work with Asterisk Animation. They have done animated sequences for such films as The Chicago Ten and The Buddha. We need your financial support in order to make this happen. We are excited to announce an online fundraiser via
We have some incredible and unique rewards that have been donated to us by some of the individuals involved with the film. This includes music, artwork, and memorabilia you won't be able to find anywhere else.

We have 90 days to reach our fundraising goal. But, in the end if we do not meet our goal, YOU WILL NOT GET CHARGED. The idea is to raise the desired amount and hopefully exceed this number.
To make this fundraiser a success we need all the support we can get. Even if you cannot contribute, please help us by spreading the word. Pass this info along to any friend, family member, fan club, user group, mailing list who might be interested in contributing to DON'T THINK I'VE FORGOTTEN
