News From the Freeform Front

“Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten” now streaming

Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll tells the story of how Western rock and roll came to Cambodia in the ’60s and ’70s and influenced a generation of musicians to create their own hybrid form of Cambodian rock and roll. When the Khmer Rouge took power in 1975 and wiped the country clean of all Western-influenced music, the musicians who made this music began to disappear. This documentary spotlights the creativity of those musicians and their story. Rent it here.

“White Riot” now streaming

In late ’70s Britain, the far-right National Front was gaining prominence just as the punk movement was cresting. Music photographer Red Saunders teamed up with like-minded creatives to form Rock Against Racism, a movement that brought white and black musicians together to oppose xenophobic trends in British society. White Riot is a reminder that music – and the people who make it – can make a difference. Film Movement and WFMU have joined forces to offer White Riot for online streaming. Get your tickets here.
