|the cambodian guesthouse esthetic... words fail me|
|yesterday we visited the museum at the killing fields.|
i saw the tree where they tied children up before beating them to death, and the other tree where they hung the loudspeaker to cover the screams of the dying.
|after the wrap party we went to the awesome led zeppelin café. girlontape danced to def leppard, iggy pop & the dead kennedys of course|
|my ten-year-old hero: "I really think you should stop smoking Stef - it's not good for you."|
girlontape: "Your saying that makes me love you even more dearest Moniroth! Wanna listen to a cool tune?"
the cure: "Wednesday I don't care about you, Friday I was in love."
|when she grows up, my ten-year-old hero wants to be:|
1. a doctor
2. a scientist
3. a film director
4. a fashion designer
|keeping close to the ground... the Khmer way|
|decorating Stef's copy of the script with robots & martians|
|Chaisim (solidarity) and Vitou (who always gives me an Angelina attack)|
|he plays a baddie but he's a nice man|
|some of our extras plus Song on the right. |
i really dig Song... he works hard, keeps quiet, and always looks out for the kids.
|Ilaria asked, "Are you crying because you're afraid of the elephant?"|
Kiri said, "No, I'm crying because I love her."
"I understand," said Ilaria. "Sometimes I look at my husband and I cry because I love him."
|The girls show Pietro a video from their Khmer dance class.|
|Father and son, our extras for a day... this man was so kind to us. But then all Khmer people are kindness incarnate.|
|Here's a perfect example of Khmer body language: everybody together, close to the ground.|
|Ilaria and Canelle.|
|girlontape turned 45: the cast & crew indulged (almost) all her whims|
|every time i look at this little boy i get an angelina attack|
|srey-peh's mom is so sweet... like mother like daughter|
|here's another good man. made in cambodia|
|i am your friend... i wish you no harm|
|the boat amazon was really something|
|everyone gets to sit on the camera case but me - thank you alex|
|my ten-year-old hero did the slate today|
|those cambodian boys really knock me out|
|this little man stole my heart - he told me he never had a birthday party but he thinks he's eight years old|
|happiness is making movies. how could i ever forget?|
|the sweetness of srey. every day she gives me another flower|
|they're creative, they're adventurous, they're parents, and they're in love: these two people are living proof that it can be done... my inspiration over the years|
