Official: CTFF Selects Dengue Fever Documentary “Sleepwalking Through the Mekong” directed by John Pirozzi, to screen in it’s Music Corner. The Documentary is followed by a Q/A with members of the band Dengue Fever.
Los Angeles-based band Dengue Fever takes a trip to the land that inspired their passion for Cambodian rock while discovering the rich musical legacy of a country that took Western rock and roll to exciting new places. When most people hear mention of Cambodia, their thoughts drift immediately to the sadistic Khmer Rouge regime. And while the brutal legacy of the Khmer Rogue still lingers strong, few realize that one of the forgotten casualties of their reign was Cambodia’s music scene. In this film, Dengue Fever singer Chhom Nimol experiences an emotional homecoming as the band takes the unique opportunity to perform alongside master musicians and record a few new songs.
