17:00 THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (new) @ The Flicks 3
 
event pic

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmiSqaotGzw

PG | 122 min | Comedy, Drama

Now that The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is full up with its long-term residents, co-managers Muriel Donnelly (Maggie Smith) and Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) have a dream of expansion, and they’ve found just the place: The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

With plans underway, Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) venture into the Jaipur workforce, wondering where their regular breakfast dates will lead.

Meanwhile, Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) navigate the swirling waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two very eligible suitors, and recent arrival Guy Chambers (Richard Gere) finds a muse in Sonny’s mother, Mrs. Kapoor (Lillete Dubey) for his next novel.

As his marriage to Sunaina (Tina Desai), the love of his life, quickly approaches, Sonny finds his plans for the new hotel making more claims on his time than he has available.

Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is Muriel, the keeper of everyone’s secrets. As the big day nears, family and guests alike find themselves swept up in the irresistible intoxication of an Indian wedding.​

You wish the slavish devotion to plot could be entirely forgotten in favor of sun-baked character turns and the amiability of a good ensemble. When those things take over, this film hits its stride. – SEATTLE WEEKLY

The elder actors are, of course, perfect. They never overplay the comedy or the drama, and this reserve works in counterpoint to Dev Patel’s high-energy patter. – TV GUIDE

Rarely is a sequel any good, but I simply adored this charming comedy that warms you all over! – FILM CRAZY

19:00 The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (2013) @ Meta House
 
event pic

Located in a Tokyo suburb, Studio Ghibli looks from the outside like a modest office building from. But behind its doors, some of the greatest creative talents in cinema work every day. These are the imaginations behind Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Grave of the Fireflies, My Neighbor Totoro, and Ponyo.

Mami Sunada's THE KINGDOM OF DREAMS AND MADNESS (2013, 118 min), takes us inside the Studio, offering unprecedented access to the work of producer Toshio Suzuki and world-renowned filmmakers Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata. Sunada's documentary, while quite the insider's and fan's film, is also a deeply elegiac portrait of the labour and laboriousness, flecked with uncertainty and doubt, behind some of the finest art- and imagination-fuelled films of the past 30 years.

"Three Lives of Boeung Kak" @ Bophana Center
 
event pic

These three photo series focus on three facets of Phnom Penh's northern lake. This lake is taken as an illustration of the mutation caused by the city's development and its impact on the community and its dynamics.

Without taking sides, this exhibition invites the public to appreciate the life of Boeung Kak's inhabitants before and after its filling: from life along the rails to the West of the lake until the street art as an attempt to revive the neighbourhood, and children on the shore who, adapting to their new environment, play in the dunes, admiring their elders who use the field to practice motocross.

Four amateur photographers who live or lived in Cambodia give you a rendez-vous in this atmosphere of mutations and invite you to rediscover a neighbourhood both lost and retrieved.

"Fucking War: Tardi, Verney and World War I" @ Institut Français
 
event pic

Drawings by Jacques Tardis, texts by Jean-Pierre Verney.

This exhibition reveals the images of World War 1 that French cartoonist Jacques Tardi drew for his book „Fucking war‟, along with texts written by historian Jean-Pierre Verney. It looks into the connections between time and storytelling, between memory and oblivion, truth and subjectivity, in an attempt to show how Tardi‟s works mark collective representations. In fact, Tardi remains a reference for the cartoonist who ventured to draw World War 1.

Within a project launched in 2014 by the AEFE (Agency for the teaching of French abroad) for the World War I commemoration, students of the Lycée français René Descartes have worked on the project « Cambodians and World War I ». They designed two boards, one about the War Memorial in Phnom Penh and one about two Cambodian soldiers who died during World War I, which will both be exhibited on this occasion.

"Consuming Passion" by Chhim Sothy @ The Plantation
 
event pic

Consuming Passion is a unique collection of 18 recent paintings never shown before, with strong influence of green and blue colours, representing abstract vast horizons of nature. The exhibition is a message to all Cambodians to protect together the biggest heritage of the country: its wild life and nature.

Born in Kandal Province in 1969, Chhim Sothy started to draw in his early childhood and never stopped since. With an average of one painting per week, 4 per month, 25 a year, Sothy has already created almost 500 paintings over the past 20 years. Enthusiast about his art - almost bulimic - Sothy is a very spontaneous painter.
