Much like TDL podcast host, Chris G. Parkhurst, filmmaker John Pirozzi has been doing documentary work in the SE Asian country of Cambodia for well over a decade, initially with the Matt Dillon feature film City of Ghosts, and then later on through his own documentary projects, Sleepwalking Through the Mekong, a film about Los Angeles band Dengue Fever‘s return to the homeland, as well as the award-winning Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten, a film that examines the history of rock and roll in Cambodia.
Parkhurst and Pirozzi sit down to have a frank and open conversation about what it means to film in a developing country, including how to best do it with one’s family. Hilarious, insightful, and inspiring stories were shared. Don’t miss this great first, in a series of monthly conversations with documentary industry people.
