Many thanks for your support. I will keep the group informed on our progress.

Spencer is very keen to start moving on this project and I have many hours of existing interviews with him in addition to the 8mm film dating 1971 to 1975 in Cambodia.


It sounds like an amazing project. I feel the 1970-75 civil war period is often overlooked because of the cataclysm that followed it. It deserves more coverage, if only to give some context to later events. All the best with it anyway, it would be great if you got some backing.

What about the 1965-1970 period, the first gap for the U.S. embassy here in PP -- you almost hear nothing about that as well.

Have you started to release more footage to YouTube other than what was posted here on the forums?

How many hours of footage do you guys have. I think as more and more Generation X and now the millennials have at least visited Cambodia as tourists compared to 20 years ago, you'd be surprised how many people would be interested in well edited video. The 13 minute clip posted above drew me in. I want to see more.


Spencer captured several hours of 8mm film and took hundreds of still photos. His story is so vast that it is taking some time to work out where to start. Breaking it down into short 3 to 4 minute video chunks for YouTube will ensure to grab peoples attention without boredom setting in. Much of his life and death struggles could not be filmed for obvious reasons however we have his entire experience videotaped and it will be rolling this out once we develop a filming plan. I agree, the Cambodian story is very much in the minds of the younger generation and especially young Cambodians, most of whom have a direct connection with family members caught up in the aftermath of the war. We did a short trip back to Cambodia to meet with local Generals. He was welcomed as a hero at Chantarengseys old base. The below link is on YouTube.

That's interesting, but I'm not sure who this Dara Chan Rainsei is? Do you mean General Norodom Chantaraingsey? It seems he did actually fight on in Kampong Speu till maybe 1976:

Spencer and I would be very interested in making contact with your Canadian contact. We do have a few second had accounts of Chantarengsey's last few days, while trying to escape to Thailand, however it would be a great addition to Spencer's story to reveal the actual outcome from someone who was there.
