Cambodia’s Anti-Archive Film Initiative Boosts Local Helmers

Cambodian filmmaking collective Anti-Archive’s Echoes of Tomorrow initiative debuted in Busan’s Wide Angle shorts competition with the world premiere of Danech San’s “A Million Years.” Echoes of Tomorrow provides an opportunity to three first-time filmmakers to direct a short each.

“The film is not really like a story. My intention is to really talk about inner feelings,” San told Variety. “A Million Years” follows a woman taking a break in a riverside restaurant who talks about her past experiences with her server. The other two shorts, “Garden,” by Sreylin Meas, and “Intersection,” by Kanitha Tith, will be completed by the end of the year.
