  • Un film de Davy Chou

Le cinéma cambodgien, né en 1960, a vu son irrésistible ascension stoppée brutalement en 1975 par l'arrivée au pouvoir des Khmers Rouges. La plupart des films ont disparu, les acteurs ont été tués et les salles de cinéma, transformées en restaurants ou karaokés. Le sommeil d'or filme la parole de quelques survivants et tente de réveiller l'esprit de ce cinéma oublié.

Cambodian cinema flourished in the 1960s, drawing huge crowds to theaters around the country, until the industry was destroyed by the Khmers Rouges in 1975. Of the 400 films produced, only 30 remain today. Almost all the actors were killed during the reign of Pol Pot and only a few of the directors were able to flee the country. Most of the old movie theaters of Phnom Penh have become restaurants, karaoke clubs or squats. Golden Slumbers resurrects the myths and legends of this lost cinema. Through survivors' stories and the search for remnants of their era in modern Phnom Penh, the film reveals the vital importance movies had for an entire generation, as well as the complex legacy they leave today's youth to inherit.
