‘Ruin’ Trailer Now Showing on the Hanuman Films Youtube Channel

Special Orizzonti Prize Winner at the Venice Film Festival 2013, Ruin was the first international co-production for Hanuman Films, in collaboration with Australian filmmakers Amiel Courtin-Wilson and Michael Cody.



Shot on location in Cambodia over the course of 2011 and 2013, this arthouse road movie tells the story of two young lovers living on the margins of Cambodian society.


“Ruin is an impressionistic fable – the story of Phirun (Rous Mony) and Sovanna (Sang Malen) – two young lovers inexplicably drawn together who escape a brutal and exploitative world of crime and violence in modern day Cambodia.


Fleeing Phnom Penh after a murder, they travel deeper into the jungle. As their vulnerable love ebbs and flows along their journey, they wake from the trauma of their former lives and unleash a violent rage upon the world. Love and death intermingle as they travel deeper into the abyss, their world strangely transforming around the two young lovers on the run.”


Other awards for Ruin include:


‘Best Image’ – 2morrow Film Festival Moscow 2014

‘Best Editing’ – 56th Asia-Pacific Film Festival 2014

‘Best Direction’ – Fantaspoa International Film Festival 2014


Ruin has not yet been premiered in Cambodia so watch this space for an update on future screenings.

Join Hanuman Films on a Virtual Location Scout in Battambang

Watch this location video of Cambodia’s charming second city, including impressive colonial-era buildings, a striking riverside location and some out-of-town attractions set in an idyllic rural setting.

Battambang is a great place to create the old atmosphere of French Indochine or the parts of Indochina back in the days of the Vietnam War, before cities like Hanoi and Phnom Penh developed a modern face. All The Last Reel cinema locations were shot in Battambang as was much of The Gate, based on Francois Bizot’s book, currently in post-production. Add to the architecture the infamous bamboo ‘norry’ train or one of the famed hilltop ancient temples like Phnom Banan and you have one of Cambodia’s most diverse locations for a film crew wanting to stay away from the public eye and concentrate on getting the job done.

Naked & Afraid in Cambodia

Renegade 83 Productions for Discovery Channel, Jan-Feb 2014

A popular show on the Discovery Channel, the Naked & Afraid team travelled to Cambodia to shoot an episode in the first part of 2014. Contacting Hanuman Films months in advance, we coordinated all the scouting for this shoot and selected the final remote location for the contestants to survive. After initial consideration of jungle areas as varied as Mondulkiri, Bokor and Chi Phat, we eventually settled on a remote location in Koh Kong Province about 45 minutes upriver from Koh Kong town. This satisfied the crew’s need for a convenient logistical base together with the requirement to have the talent dropped in a very remote area with no human contact. The three-week shoot started in the middle of January with the two contestants being dropped in the jungle. Hanuman Films provided a large support team for this shoot, including our Fixer Vutha Soth and a local crew that included two medics, two runners and several boat drivers to get the crew in and out of the remote location. Although the contestants had to get naked for this shoot, it was clear they didn’t need to be afraid with Hanuman Films running the shoot.

Soap Commercial In Cambodia

An Indian based production company “Mad Studios” was in Cambodia recently to film a commercial for a new soap product. The concept for the commercial was to recreate an archeological dig at an Angkorian temple complete with extras and all necessary props. Mad Studios were on a tight shooting schedule and had booked flights to arrive 10 days after initial contact was made with Hanuman Films. Before the arrival of the International crew Hanuman Films had to find a suitable location, hire extras, local technical crew, source all props and organize a helicopter to perform aerials during the shoot. The remote temples of Banteay Chhmar were selected as the ideal location for the commercial and all permits and permissions were organized accordingly. Mad Studios arrived in Cambodia on Thursday 7th August for a recce and filming commenced the very next day with Hanuman Films supplying a large convoy of vehicles and an army of local production assistants to help facilitate the production.

On Location with Hanuman Films at the Great Preah Khan Temple

Join a virtual location scout to the Great Preah Khan Temple of Kompong Svay, not to be confused with the other Preah Khan in Siem Reap which is part of the Grand Circuit at Angkor.



Also know as Bakan, this temple was considered one of the largest built during that time. It has been quite badly damaged by looting over the years, but retains a well-preserved 4-face temple called Prasat Preah Stung.


It used to be the Mother of all Temples to reach, located in splendid isolation at the end of decaying Angkorian roads and snaking sandy tracks. However, today there is a good road right up to the temple passing through Sangkum Thmei District in Preah Vihear Province. Journey times from Preah Vihear City (2hrs) and Kompong Thom (3hrs) have been reduced dramatically.

On Location at the King of the Mountain Temples, Preah Vihear

Location, location, location, join Hanuman Films on a scout at Preah Vihear, a dramatic mountain-top temple perched on the cliffs of the Dangrek Mountains.

 

This imposing temple marks the border between Cambodia and Thailand. It sits 600m, above the Cambodian plains below, and many consider its location the most dramatic of all the Angkorian temples. The final level of the temple clings to a cliff face in the Dangrek Mountains, towering hundreds of metres above lowland Cambodia below. The views from this most mountainous of temple mountains are breathtaking, the foundation stones of the temple stretching to the edge of the cliff as it plunges precipitously away to the plains below.

On Location with Hanuman Films in Phnom Penh

Head out on location with the Hanuman Films team around Phnom Penh to explore some top spots around the capital.

Welcome to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s resurgent and vibrant capital. Once dubbed the ‘Pearl of Asia’, Phnom Penh is fast regaining its sheen, boasting the glimmering spires of the Royal Palace, the fluttering saffron of monks’ robes and a luscious location on the banks of the mighty Mekong River. The city streets and markets are a continuous hive of activity, the capital’s landmarks are an eclectic mix of old and new and Phnom Penh is now among the hip cities of the region, with an alluring café culture, bustling bars and a world-class food scene.

Sustainable Green Fuel Enterprise Short Film

Deforestation is a serious and growing issue in Cambodia which is mainly caused by the production of charcoal for cooking purposes. A Cambodian based organization, Sustainable Green Fuel Enterprise, is providing an ecologically friendly solution by using coconut shells to produce charcoal. This charcoal not only benefits the environment but it is more cheaper in price and proven to burn longer than other charcoal.

 

 

In February 2014 Hanuman Films was contacted by UK based production company, TVE, to undertake filming of the Sustainable Green Fuel Enterprise premise in Phnom Penh. The organization had been nominated for an Ashden Award which celebrates work which benefits the environment.  The purpose of filming was too make a promotional video about the production of the charcoal with the final video being shown at the award ceremony.

 

Hanuman Films filmed the promotional video over a two day period in March. The majority of the filming took place at the Sustainable Green Fuel Enterprise factory in Phnom Penh and some additional scenes were filmed showing people using the ecologically friendly charcoal in the community. After the footage was shot it was immediately sent to the UK where it was edited at the TVE headquarters in-time for the ceremony.
