For Women's Day this year, a special competition asked fine art students from the Royal University of Fine Arts to create artwork that addressed the issue of women’s empowerment in Cambodia.

Creative Charcoal is a special collection from these students, illustrating a social message as well as their talent. The artwork of the competition's 13 finalists is on display at ARTillery on St. 240 1/2.

In partnership with Sustainable Green Fuel Enterprises (SGFE) the winning artwork has been printed on SGFE's char-briquette charcoal bags which are used in thousands of homes, shops and restaurants around Cambodia - spreading the social message these students have illustrated.

Join us to celebrate these young artists in their first exhibition, and support the power of the arts for social change!

Free wine and refreshments the first hour, with Artist Discussion at 7:00pm.

We look forward to welcoming you on the Street 240 and a half!

20:30 THE KILLING FIELDS (1985) @ The Flicks 2
event pic

Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist covering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war, in Phnom Penh.

When the American forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.

The Killing Fields is a suspenseful and exhilarating experience, a journey through an apocalyptic landscape that features one shocking image after another. Watch, and you'll see why the film is so acclaimed and a must-see for everybody in Cambodia; locals as visitors.

(141 minutes, biography, drama, history)

Regulars and reminders
"Undivided Nature" by Sin Rithy @ Romeet Gallery
event pic

Romeet is pleased to present “Undivided Nature; the death within life / the life within death”, a solo exhibition by the Battambang based artist Sin Rithy.

This exhibition is a discussion of contradictions around several life & death forces. As long as life is, life is an empty blank space in which all stories can be written. Death, as a never-ending and certain journey, is full. Emptiness is the direct experience of boundless, ever-expanding and undivided nature.

Sin Rithy makes this exhibition literally alive, by including living animals and textiles waving in the wind. Nature, not in its botanical aspect but instead referring to the human being, the intrinsic instinct, represented through animals, conflict, canvas, wood or portraits is the main subject of Rithy’s works; but with this omniscient question: what is full and what is empty?

Overtaking sadness and pity, artist Sin Rithy tries to pictures emotions and feelings and to give to the audience an expression of the invisible wich always occupied emptiness to make it fullness.

Subjects of this Sin Rithy exhibition reveal the artist awareness of his past and thereby his redemption.
