Postponed: Screening – Phnom Penh Lullaby

Screening July 8, 2011 7:00 PM

Phnom Penh Lullaby is a compelling portrait of Ilan Schickman who left Israel to find a new life in Cambodia. Now living in Phnom Penh with his Cambodian partner Saran and two young daughters, he tries to make ends meet as a street fortune-teller.

Saran wants to marry Ilan and leave Cambodia and the life of poverty, but he doesn’t want to abandon the new life he has forged there.

Shocking, heart-breaking, and harrowing, the film is an intimate study of their daily life and the decisions they face that has been described as one of the most moving character studies released this year.
