Watch Chummeng Suon’s My Dance Children, a documentary that intertwines the past and present of Cambodian American Dancers, during a free film screening and performance at MRT Liberty Hall on July 18th and 20th from 6-8 PM. This film pays homage to the legendary Chea Samy, the early 20th-century star of the royal troupe, known for portraying the goddess Moni Mekhala. Though she passed away in 1994, Chea Samy’s enduring legacy continues to inspire and shape Phousita Huy’s and her students’ artistic journeys.
Dedicated to Chea Samy’s memory, this documentary follows the compelling stories of Cambodian American dancers Channa Sath, Stephanie Seng, and Brianna Mai. Watch as they navigate their roles as cultural bearers, deeply embedded in their rich Cambodian dance heritage. Their personal and professional lives are intricately woven with their relationship with Neakru Phousita Huy, reflecting a profound connection to their artistic roots.
Reserve your seat for an unforgettable journey through tradition, heritage, and artistic evolution, as these Cambodian American dancers confront and embrace their responsibilities, bringing the ancient art of Cambodian dance into the 21st-century.
