Fort Morgan, CO. 4/8/2019. Morgan Community College (MCC) Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) invites the community to attend the annual Boulder

One Cambodian Family Please for My Pleasure

International Film Festival on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the Historic Sands Theater, located at 211 Clayton Street in Brush, Colorado. The evening will feature a selection of short films and the opportunity to discuss film styles and dramatic effects with famed film critic, Walter Chaw. Chaw’s work has appeared in the LA Times, LA Weekly, and the NY Times.

Included among the Festival’s screenings is the short film One Cambodian Family Please for My Pleasure, direct to Boulder International Film Festival from Sundance 2019. The film, based in 1981, portrays a lonely refugee from Czechoslovakia who paints an all-too-appealing picture of her American life as she writes a letter begging an organization to send a Cambodian refugee family so that she can help resettle them in her new “hometown of dreams”: Fargo, North Dakota. Directed by A.M. Lukas, the film is based on the true story of the director’s mother, Helena, and features Emily Mortimer in the starring role.

This local presentation of Boulder International Film Festival movies is free and open to the public, due to generous donors who support the mission of CACE.
