    Davy Chou

    Davy Chou is a French Cambodian filmmaker. He is the grandson of Van Chann, one of the greatest producers in Cambodia in the 1960s and the 1970s. In 2007 he directed his first short film. His second short film "Expired", was shot during his first trip to Cambodia in 2008 and was selected at Entrevues Belfort International Film Festival in 2008. In 2009, Davy Chou created in Phnom Penh a filmmaking workshop with 4 schools and 60 students. The result was a 50-minute collective film named "Twin Diamonds" that was screened in Cambodia. In October 2009, Davy Chou curated “Golden Reawakening”, a film festival and exhibition about the golden age of Cambodian cinema in the 1960s and the 1970s. He is the founder of Kon Khmer Koun Khmer, a group of young Cambodians students and artists. The documentary film "Golden Slumbers" (Le sommeil d'or) is his first feature length film.  "Golden Slumbers" was released in French theatres on September 2012 and on DVD on April 2013 in France. In 2014, his short film Cambodia 2099 premiered at Cannes International Film Festival at the Directors Fortnight.
