Cambodian film-maker praCh Ly Friday said uninterrupted artistic freedom in his country is still not a reality and people from the creative field are punished if they make anything critical of the government.
Ly, who is currently based in the United States and also a well-known rapper, expressed his desire to go back to his home country.
“Artistic freedom has improved a little bit since Khmer Rouge days. But it is definitely not in terms of full artistic freedom. I was banned to go back to Cambodia for few years as I had said few things through my music also,” Ly said.
