Norodom Sihanouk

#1 Post by jsteffe » Wed May 11, 2016 4:17 pm

I understand that Norodom Sihanouk, the King of Cambodia, directed a number of films. Several were released on VHS years ago. Have any of his films been restored or preserved since then? Any plans to release them on DVD?

Most of his pre-1970 output (plus a few later works he wrote but didn't direct) has been preserved by the French CNC. A few have been restored, but I find no sign of planned DVD releases.

This is really helpful, thanks! It's good to know that at least some of the films have been preserved.
