Global Voices

The Flute Player/50/Fifty

Episode Guide »
Arn Chorn-Pond's family was slaughtered by the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s, along with 90 percent of Cambodia's musicians and artists. Now living in the U.S., Arn is attempting to transcend the terrors of "Pol Pot time" by rescuing traditional Cambodian music from extinction. "The Flute Player" relates his journey back to a still-uneasy Cambodia to find surviving "master musicians" and to recover his own Cambodian identity. This episode also includes the short film "50/Fifty," a soulful requiem for a family's past. Using old home movies and hand-processed film, Jane Kim pays homage to the memory of her father, who passed away when she was young.
