Chris Rompré is a Canadian filmmaker based in Phnom Penh. He and Haig Balian – Rompré’s business partner and friend – have just finished their first narrative documentary, The Man Who Built Cambodia, which explores the life and work of Cambodian architect Vann Molyvann.
The documentary traces Molyvann’s career from the development of ‘New Khmer Architecture’, of which he was a central figure, to his return to Cambodia in the 1990s as he grapples with seeing many of his works being neglected or destroyed in the post-Khmer Rouge era.
