The shipping out of Cambodia is unreliable and extortionist, and an oral history not does produce a "product" that is necessarily tangible, even as archives of taped interviews are exceptionally priceless. I am hoping it is some enticement to backers that they will get a subscription to my persona blog of field notes with updates on process and progress along the way. Full of photos and stories of local culture and life, the blog adds a unique an first-hand element to the project experience, and is sure to be especially colorful as we head to the remote rural areas of Cambodia to collect testimony. It is also a great way to learn more about the narrators and their lives today.
A video recorded message from the team while collecting an interview "on the road" and here in Phnom Penh, with our thanks to you! We'll also invite the narrator to participate if she feels up to it, and we'll be sure you get an education on the beautiful country-side of Cambodia!
