Summary, etc.:
Through the eyes, words and songs of its popular music stars of the 50́s, 60́s, and 70́s, DOŃT THINK ÍVE FORGOTTEN: CAMBODIÁS LOST ROCK AND ROLL examines and unravels Cambodiás tragic past. Combining interviews with surviving musicians and never-before-seen archival material and rare songs, the film tracks the winding course of Cambodian music as it morphs into a unique style of rock and roll. A vibrant musical culture that was nearly lost forever under the brutal Khmer Rouge regime is revived and celebrated.. "As expressionistic as it is journalistic, Don't Think I've Forgotten triumphs as both an objective record and a poetic lament: It's a film that's every bit as entrancing and haunting as the lost music it celebrates." - Jason Heller, AV Club. "Mr. Pirozzís film is an unsparing and meticulous reckoning of the effects of tyranny on ordinary Cambodians. It is also a rich and defiant effort at recovery, showing that even the most murderous totalitarianism cannot fully erase the human drive for pleasure and self-expression." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times
