A Cinematic Love Song: Cambodian-American Filmmakers with NoVa Roots Premiere ‘In the Life of Music’

Loudoun-based producer Neardey Trinh and Los Angeles-based filmmaker Caylee So are more than cousins—they’re creative collaborators. Their first feature film “In the Life of Music” has been racking up awards at festivals in the U.S. and abroad and makes its Northern Virginia debut next month.

The moving and visually gorgeous film explores the experience of Generation X Cambodian-Americans who emigrated to the U.S. as young children and pays tribute to members of the previous generation who fled the Khmer Rouge regime.

“This movie is a love song to my parents’ generation,” said So, who co-wrote and co-directed the film and co-produced it with Trinh.
