Southeast Asia Movie Theater Project kicks off Kickstarter drive for Cambodian campaign
Here's another Kickstarter campaign for a project that interests me: the Southeast Asia Movie Theater Project wants to go to Cambodia to document the remaining single-screen cinemas in that country.
As "the Projectionist" explains in the Kickstarter campaign video, it's important to get to Cambodia now to see these remaining structures.
Without documentation, Cambodia's historic cinemas will be forgotten as they are bulldozed to make way for condos and shopping malls in rapidly modernizing Phnom Penh and other cities.
Having visited and photographed theaters across Thailand, Burma, Laos and Vietnam, Cambodia is the next logical step for the SEATheater blog.
Backers have until July 6 to help out and make the project a reality.
