Filmmaker John Pirozzi at Cambodia’s history Chaktomuk theatre.

Much like TDL podcast host, Chris G. Parkhurst, filmmaker John Pirozzi has been making documentary films 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.
