Cambodian New Year or the Chaul Chnam Thmey (New Year in Khmer Language) is celebrated for three days. According to the Gregorian Calendar, it falls on April 13th or 14th. New Year in Cambodia represents the end of the harvesting season and many of the people release from their hard working too.

This is an excellent movie. I wonder how you were able to film scenes about New Year celebrations in this time of year. Did you film in April, 2010? Or were you able to get people to play act that it was New Year?
Thailand also celebrates New Year at the same time, and they also call their celebration Songkran. Did you know that?

Very good job.

Dear Mr. Rick,

Thank you so much for your comment and question. Yes,in Cambodia we also call Songkran. Cambodian culture is quite the same Thai culture. The duration of this movie, we just spent only 2 weeks(last month), because it's only the represent of Khmer New Year celbration. Now it's not yet the time for Khmer New Year, it takes place in every April.

Your comment is very helpful for us
