Golden Slumbers is a tender tribute to the once-flourishing Cambodian film industry, which vanished with the Khmer Rouge’s genocidal purge beginning in 1975. As the country became consumed by war, the industry collapsed, cinemas and films were destroyed, and industry leaders were imprisoned, killed, or exiled. Of the hundreds of films made between 1960 and 1975, only a few dozen have survived the regime and still exist today. Davy Chou, the grandson of one of the most important film producers of this golden age of Cambodian cinema, pieces together the generational memories of a lost period, revisiting some of the now-shuttered spaces and resurrecting their heyday through advertisements, soundtracks, and oral histories.
