Director John Pirozzi with editor Daniel Littlewood putting the final touches on Don't Think I've Forgotten, in their Tribeca studio, a labor of love for the last 7-9 years about Cambodia's lost rock and roll, with interviews expanding the globe (Paris, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Phnom Penh, Australia etc.) with Prince Norodom Sirivudh, Prince Sisowath Panara, US Ambassador Gunther Dean, historian David Chandler.  I was deeply honored and emotional to watch the rough cuts - I remember being at half of the interviews conducted, the one with Prince Panara at my apartment on the riverfront, and to know that Sin Sisamouth was at Wat Champa after the exodus of Phnom Penh during the time we were there, and returned to Phnom Penh (to be killed) with my father!  What a BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT film... This film will do more to commemorate, to pay tribute, to document, to inspire than anything else I know out there right now, not even the work of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal can leave deep impressions and positive legacy as this deeply inspired, deeply researched, aesthetically-made film.  Don't Think I've Forgotten will introduce the world to a Cambodia not known before.  I laughed, I cried, I remembered.  We will not forget.  NEVER.  (Looking for Executive Producer - KI Media)

After the private screening of Don't Think I've Forgotten, enjoying a delightful evening of great food, excellent company of Dan Simon (founder/publisher of Seven Stories Press, his family (Ria, Asha, Miles) and their author friends Ron and Cookie, at their lovely Tribeca home (NYC, 18 Nov. 2010).  Seven Stories Press publishes The Voice of Hope.
