@ the Meta House Tonight " Land Lost, Culture Lost"

Stop evictions! Former garment factory workers are singing “a-capella” about pressing social issues. THE MESSENGER BAND, Cambodia’s only girls group with a cause, was formed in 2005 by the “Womyn’s Agenda for Change” (WAC). Tonight’s live performance, music videos (featuring the blind Chapei star Kong Nai) and Q&A with the artists is followed by the innovative community video project “LAND LOST CULTURE LOST”. The film tells the story of a land dispute in Ratanakkiri though the eyes of ethnic Jarai villagers from one of Cambodia’s remotest areas. It’s shot by the villagers and screened in the original version with English subtitles.
