The Cambodia Opera Project will be taking place at the Sofitel from 6:30pm. The concert promises an evening of authentic Italian opera: Pietro Mascagni’s masterpiece, the magnificent ” Cavalleria Rusticana. “

The big one tonight will, of course, be the return of the one, the only, the legendary: Hypnotic Fist Technique. The Phnom Penh powerhouse will be performing at LF from 8pm. A $5 ticket also gets you entry to the Code Red Agency “Cubik Returns” party at Riverhouse!

META House will be screening Mat Dillon’s City of Ghost at 4pm. The film is about a con artist who must go to Cambodia to collect his share of money from an insurance scam. The film is filmed in Cambodia in the early 00s in Phnom Penh and definitely has a flavour of old Phnom Penh.

At 8pm META House will put on KEDI, a treat for all the cat lovers in the Penh, of which there are a plenty. KEDI is a film about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people’s lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Sounds pretty sweet, right?
